RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann previews United clash

Two further first-teamers are a doubt for the Bundesliga leaders, who are travelling to Manchester confident of a victory, according to Julian Nagelsmann.

Right-back Lukas Klostermann and midfielder Konrad Laimer had already been ruled out of the Group H match-up with knee injuries, but the 33-year-old coach revealed that French defender Nordi Mukiele has stayed in Germany to work on his recovery.

Kevin Kampl, who also featured in the XI for that 3-0 last-four defeat to PSG in August, requires a further fitness test, as does fellow central midfielder, American international Tyler Adams.

“If nothing happens in the training session now, [Kampl] could start tomorrow,” said Nagelsmann.

Scott calls for repeat of Paris performance

The Scotland international was speaking on Monday’s episode of United Daily, ahead of our first-ever meeting with the club from eastern Germany.

Like the Reds, Leipzig won their opening game – with a 2-0 victory over Istanbul Basaksehir at the Red Bull Arena – and McTominay is keen for performance levels not to drop as the sides compete for the early advantage in Group H.

“With a big win on Wednesday, it would be massive for everybody and the confidence that we are getting each week, and match by match, it would be really beneficial for the squad,” Scott said.


United back Pogba over unfounded reports

“I am against any and all forms of terror and violence. My religion is one of peace and love and must be respected. Unfortunately, some press people don’t act responsibly when writing the news, abusing their press freedom, not verifying if what they write/reproduce is true, creating a gossip chain without caring it affects people’s lives and my life.

“I am taking legal action against the publishers and spreaders of these 100% fake news. In a quick shout-out to The Sun, who normally could not care less: some of you guys probably went to school and will remember how your teacher said to always check your sources, don’t write without making sure. But hey, seems you did it again and on a very serious topic this time, shame on you!”
