Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Axel Tuanzebe would be out until September, back in July as per ManUtd.com.
The manager turns out to be accurate with his information with the centre-back returning to training.
Solskjaer never specified the nature of Tuanzebe’s injury, which was sustained ahead of last season’s restart against Tottenham.
This is not only a boost to Tuanzebe but the whole squad. United’s defence needs reinforcements but Solskjaer will be mindful of the youngster’s performances last term prior to his injury.
Manchester United’s official Twitter account shared a picture of Tuanzebe training today, with the tweet reading: “On the road to recovery.”

Saturday’s match against Brighton has come too soon for Tuanzebe, so we don’t expect him to be back in the squad this weekend.
That said, I don’t think we’ll be waiting long to see the young defender back on the pitch again.
Solskjaer is expected to be asked about Tuanzebe tomorrow morning at his press conference.
