Alex Telles returns to United training after positive coronavirus test

Manchester United and under-fire boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed boost ahead of Everton clash as Alex Telles returns to training after positive coronavirus test… and full-back could make his Premier League debut against the Toffees

  • Alex Telles made Manchester United debut against PSG in Champions League
  • He was then forced into period of isolation after testing positive for coronavirus
  • He is now back in training and in contention to face Everton on Saturday 
  • Telles’ return is a significant boost for under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 

Alex Telles is back in training on the eve of Manchester United’s clash with Everton after a period of self-isolation due to coronavirus.

The former Porto full-back made his United debut in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain, but is yet to feature in the Premier League after his positive Covid test.

United were handed a boost on Friday though after the club revealed that the Brazilian is back in training, posting a video of him walking back out onto the training pitches at Carrington alongside his team-mates.

Pressure is mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a series of poor results, and the return of Telles will boost his team ahead of a tough test against Everton.

Telles missed back-to-back defeats by Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir, and was also absent for the games against Chelsea and RB Leipzig in the league and Champions League.

During his period of self-isolation, Telles kept United supporters updated with his progress and was even seen watching the matches in the club’s colours. 

Telles is now in contention to line up for United against Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees, who themselves are also in a difficult run of form with two defeats in a row.

The left back is also set to head off on international duty following the match, after being included in Brazil’s squad to face Venezuela and Uruguay in two World Cup 2020 qualifiers.
