Alex Telles to miss the start of Premier League

, Alex Telles to miss the start of Premier League, Frederick Nuetei

Telles who moved to Old Trafford from Porto for £15 million ($21m) last October, and made 27 appearances across all competitions in his first season with the Red Devils is said to miss the first start of the premier league.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Alex Telles will miss the start of Manchester United’s 2021-22 season due to an ankle injury that is “more severe than we hoped”.

Telles suffered a knock in training last week that forced him to the side lines at United’s 4-2 friendly defeat to Queens Park Rangers which the manager initially predicted not be serious.

However, the Norwegian boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now confirmed that the defender is facing a far longer spell on the sidelines after being evaluated by the club’s medical staff.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY THE MANAGER:
What’s been said?
Luke Shaw is currently the Red Devils’ first-choice right-back, but Brandon Williams could now be asked to step in and provide cover in Telles’ absence.

“Unfortunately, it’s worse news on Alex Telles than we hoped for, his ankle injury is a little bit more severe than we hoped and he’ll be out for a little spell at least, the whole of August I would think,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“That is football. We’ve got kids wanting to play of course. Brandon has done well in the left-back position.”

How many games could Telles miss?
Telles is now destined to be absent for United’s next three pre-season fixtures against Brentford, Preston and Everton before the new Premier League campaign kicks off on August 14.

Solskjaer’s side will open their schedule against Leeds United at Old Trafford, with away fixtures against Southampton and Wolves set to follow.

Telles won’t be available for those three outings, but could return to action in time for a home meeting with Newcastle on September 11 if his recovery goes smoothly.
