Maguire fit enough for bench in Europa League final

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was named on the bench for Wednesday’s Europa League final with Villarreal.

The centre-back’s participation in the final was put into significant doubt this month when he suffered ankle ligament damage during United’s 3-1 win at Aston Villa.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had previously said he expected Maguire to miss the Gdansk showpiece.

But Maguire at least had a chance of being involved after earning a place among the substitutes as United eyed their first piece of silverware since winning the same competition back in 2017.

Eric Bailly partnered Victor Lindelof at the heart of United’s defence, which David de Gea played behind after he was preferred to Dean Henderson in goal.
