Mason Mount returns to Manchester United training after four months out with calf injury


Mason Mount has returned to Manchester United training for the first time since sustaining a calf injury in November.

The 25-year-old, who joined United from Chelsea in a deal worth £60million ($76.7m) last summer, last played for the club during the 1-0 victory over Luton Town on November 11. He played just 12 times for United before suffering that calf problem.

United confirmed on Tuesday that Mount had returned to training ahead of their FA Cup quarter-final against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Speaking last week ahead of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Everton, Ten Hag said: “Mason Mount I think he is in a good spell now and he will return shortly, I think after the international break.”

Mount, Manchester United and a move that has not worked out… yet

United’s first two games after the international break are against Brentford on March 30 and then Mount’s former club Chelsea on April 4.

Erik ten Hag’s side are still without Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Rasmus Hojlund, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Anthony Martial, and Tyrell Malacia due to injuries. Maguire, Hojlund and Wan-Bissaka, though, are in line to return against Liverpool.

Ten Hag said last week on Malacia: “I think it’s going to be difficult for him this season to be available.

“He will fight, he’s back on the pitch, but not in the team and the process had some setbacks for him and he’s still going forwards really slowly, and the season is coming to an end.”
