Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that defender, Diogo Dalot will play against Southampton in Saturday’s Premier League fixture.
According to Mourinho, Dalot is ready to play again for the Red Devils after recovery from injury.
The 55-year-old also said that the full-back has been training with United for two weeks in a bid to feature this weekend.
“The opportunities will always come. Phil Jones was not playing. Lindelof got injured and Jones had the opportunity to play against Young Boys,” Mirror UK quoted Mourinho as saying in Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“It will happen all over the place I believe. For the other game Luke Shaw was suspended and now we have Ashley Young with four yellow cards.
“Who knows when the fifth is arriving? Players must be ready. In this case some are going away to the medical room and some are coming back.
“For example this weekend will be the first call for Dalot. He is ready now. He had an important injury, surgery, then a second injury in the national team when he was coming up, when he was already playing against Young Boys and Derby County, when he was almost here.
“But now he has been training for two weeks and we think he is ready now.”
The kick-off time for the match is 6:30pm.
