Heartbroken Man Utd star Harry Maguire a major Euro 2020 doubt and will MISS Europa League final due to injury
HEARTBROKEN HARRY MAGUIRE will miss the Europa League Final in Gdansk due to his ankle ligament injury.
Now he must be a major doubt for England and the Euros next month too.
Hopes were raised when he was pictured on Thursday night without crutches or his protective boot at the premier of Sir Alex Ferguson’s film ‘Never Give In’.
But Manchester United boss Ole Solskjaer says those are forlorn hopes.
Solskjaer said: “He's walking but it's a long way from walking to running. To be honest I don't think we'll see him Gdansk, no.
“I'm going to give him until Tuesday night, the last training session to be out there. Steadily but surely he's improving but ligaments take time to heal.”
Solskjaer says he will still make sure his captain is involved in the build up by addressing the team before the game – and no doubt during it.
His bellowing voice from the stands has been well heard since he was sidelined with the injury in the 3-1 away win at Aston Villa back on May 9th.
Solskjaer said: “He's a very important person in the dressing room and a leader.

“Before fans came in you heard him from the stands, he wants the team to do well, he's organising from the stands, it's easy because it's been so quiet. He'll make sure everyone's ready for the final.”
Maguire has 32 England Caps and three goals for his country and would have been a certain starter on June 13th when their campaign kicks-off against Croatia.
Now it will be left to Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate to monitor the centre-back to see if he can recover in time.
