Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney and midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin have been left out of the Reds’ 19-man squad for Tuesday’s key Champions League game against Wolfsburg.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal flew out with 19 players to Germany for Tuesday’s decisive Champions League match against Wolfsburg.
Captain Wayne Rooney is absent after missing Saturday’s goalless draw against West Ham United with an ankle injury, while Morgan Schneiderlin did not travel after being forced off during the game against the Hammers with a hip problem. Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia are all still absent.
Paddy McNair is named in the squad despite coming off at half-time at the weekend with an ankle injury and his replacement in that game, Guillermo Varela, is one of several youngsters in the party.
Nick Powell is included in the senior squad for the first time since recovering from a long-term hamstring injury and he is joined by midfielder Sean Goss and defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
United’s travelling squad as confirmed on the club’s official website: David De Gea, Sergio Romero; Paddy McNair, Chris Smalling, Guillermo Varela, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Michael Carrick, Sean Goss, Nick Powell, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata; Memphis Depay, Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial.
