Mainoo drops injury hint

Kobbie Mainoo has teased he could be nearing a comeback from injury for Manchester United.

The youngster picked up an ankle injury during United’s pre-season tour of the United States. Mainoo impressed in all of the senior team’s first three pre-season outings, earning himself a place in midfield against Real Madrid at the NRG Stadium in Texas.

However, he would feature for little more than five minutes against the La Liga giants, being replaced by Christian Eriksen after picking up an injury. United were already 1-0 down by the time he departed following Jude Bellingham’s early goal.

The 18-year-old took to Instagram to post an update after the game, writing: “I’ll be back stronger and in no time. Thanks for your messages of support.”
