Raphael Varane provides Man United fans with update on injury progress


Sidelined Manchester United star Raphael Varane has, on Monday, provided an insight into his efforts to return to the pitch.

Shaky start

Stopper Varane’s fitness has of course proven a major source of concern on the red half of Manchester over the early months of the campaign.

This comes with the French international, a summer arrival from Real Madrid, having thus far managed just six Premier League appearances.

In his defence, Varane did miss almost all of United’s first month of the term, simply as a result of the delayed nature of his transfer. Since, however, the 28-year-old has been forced onto the sidelines on a pair of separate occasions, owing to muscular injury problems.

First, during a Nations League appearance with France, he limped out of proceedings with a groin injury.

Then, shortly after marking his return to the pitch, Varane was again forced onto the treatment table, after picking up a hamstring issue during a Champions League group stage showdown with Atalanta.

‘Be at my best’

The gifted defender, as a result, has not managed a single appearance since early last month, sitting out all of Manchester United’s last six fixtures.

In turn, speaking in an interview with the club’s official website earlier today, it came as little surprise when Varane was drawn on his progress towards a return to the pitch.

And though he stopped short of providing a comeback date, the ex-Lens talent confirmed that he remains ‘hard at work’ in his recovery efforts, amid something of a shock with the ‘big difference’ between methods in Manchester, and long-time home Madrid:

‘Yes, I’m working very hard and, you know, footballers are like F1 [cars] so sometimes we have to change something and to improve the motor.’

‘I think I have to change a little thing because it’s a big difference, a big change.’

‘The kind of work is different work so I have to adapt. I know that and I’m working very hard to be at my best as quickly as possible. I know it’s big work but I’m ready to do it, to try to improve.’

‘I’m very excited to come back to help the team.’
