MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United captain Harry Maguire could be sidelined for “a few weeks” with a calf injury, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Tuesday.
The center back was injured in a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday and will miss United’s match against Spanish team Villarreal in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday.
United hosts Everton in a Premier League game on Saturday before the international break.
“It’s his calf. That might take a few weeks, so let’s see how quickly he recovers,” Solskjaer said at a press conference.
