Solskjaer adds Anthony Elanga to Man United’s Squad to Face Granada

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has added forward, Anthony Elanga, to his side’s squad to face Granada in the Europa League quarter-final, first-leg tie in Spain on Thursday night.

Man United disclosed this in a statement on the club’s official website on Tuesday.

The Red Devils head to the game following a 2-1 win over Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.

The statement read, “The Reds are due to fly to Spain on Wednesday for the quarter-final first leg, and Elanga is the latest youngster in contention for a place as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to show his faith in youth.

“Clubs are allowed to add homegrown players to their B list for the competition if they meet certain criteria.

“The reigning Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year is fit again after a collarbone injury sustained after scoring twice in the Under-23s’ Premier League 2 clash with Leicester City in January.

“He joined in with the senior session at the Aon Training Complex on Tuesday.

“The speedy 18-year-old forward signed a new contract at United last month after rising through the ranks.”

Elanga has been a key figure for Neil Wood’s Under-23s.

The Sweden youth international appeared as a substitute in the first team’s only pre-season friendly, at Aston Villa, before the 2020/21 campaign kicked off.
