Bilic said in his presser “He is and was ahead of schedule. He is a good healer, a bit of a monster phyiscally. So, the fact is he is ahead which means he is playing for the U23s tonight and will miss United away but has trained with us since Monday. Tonight, he is playing and he should be in the squad at least for Southampton, but that was the plan all along.”

Estimated Return Date: 19th August

  1. G’day All, hmmmm a mýstery groin complaint for Carroll, the mind is spinning on how he always has a “mystery” complaint, I wonder if it will ever get an airing on how he picked it up.
