Brazil’s national team doctor has revealed that Manchester United star Antony is still in the ”recovery phase” after suffering a hip injury.
Antony has not played for United since coming off at half-time during the 3-0 Europa League victory over Sheriff on October 27.
“Antony had a small problem in the flexor muscles of the right hip, he is in the recovery process,” said Lasmar.
“We’re in contact with the player, with the medical department. He’s in a recovery phase. We have time for him to recover in time to be with us. This week is important, we are talking day by day. This final phase is important.
“A lot depends on this week. I spoke to him in the morning, he’s feeling better, it’s early. He hasn’t started training with the group yet, he’s in physical therapy.”
