After he injured his Achilles tendon. This season, he has missed five games for Manchester United due to injury.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer chose to turn aside the 4-2-3-1 system and switch to the 3-5-2 system in the away game at Atalanta. The three centre-backs consist of Rafael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire, with Varane receiving much praise as the leader of the defensive line. Help raise the support line of “Red Devils” to be stronger. His absence would definitely affect the “Red Devils” defense line.

“Varaan felt pain in his Achilles tendon. So we don’t take the risk by substituting him. It’s very unfortunate Because Rafa is a player who has a lot of influence on the competition. He was very calm and cold,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of Varane.
