Manchester United’s Alex Telles on crutches ahead of new season

Alex Telles is on crutches as he recovers from an injury that will rule him out for the start of the new campaign.

The Brazil left-back joined Manchester United last year to give the manager a back-up solution to Luke Shaw.

However, Telles sustained an ankle injury in training at Pennyhill Park, where United were based earlier this summer.

The Manchester Evening News have a picture of Telles on crutches while leaving a restaurant in Hale on Sunday evening.

With the Brazilian requiring a protective boot it’s unlikely he will be available for United’s games later this month against Leeds United, Southampton and Wolves.

“Unfortunately, it’s worse news on Alex Telles than we hoped for,” Solskjaer said last week.

“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.

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

Diogo Dalot remains at the club despite links with a move elsewhere, and he’s another who can play on the left though it would be a surprise if he was still at the club when the new season begins.
