Injured Manchester United player spotted on crutches

Manchester United left-back Alex Telles was spotted on crutches as he recovers from an injury that has ruled him out for the start of the new season.

The Brazilian left-back suffered an ankle injury in training on the eve of the friendly against Queens Park Rangers on July 28.

Telles was also wearing a protective boot on his right ankle and is set to be unavailable for United’s games against Leeds United, Southampton and Wolves this month.

Meanwhile, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave an update on Telles’ injury last week.

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

“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.”
