Speaking moments before the presentation of the monthly award, club boss Solskjaer explained the reason why the Frenchman, who did not play against Reading in their 2-0 win failed to arrive Dubai with other squad members.

“Paul has had his knock and has had a few days of treatment back home.

“Hopefully, we can get Paul on his feet during this week,” noted the Norwegian, who further revealed latest news concerning Fred and Marcos Rojo ahead of Tottenham showdown at Wembley.
