‘Everybody is looking good. Running, working hard and playing football,’ he told the club’s official website.

‘Little two-a-sides and doing some ball work. Everyone is getting better and better.

‘Everyone is back, even Paul (Pogba) is back training normally and Rashy is back training as normal.

‘Everyone is training normally and training full and all that, so the squad is full and everyone is ready, I think.

‘I can’t wait for the league to start again.’
