Why Anthony Elanga isn’t with Manchester United squad at training camp – .

Anthony Elanga missed Manchester United’s training camp in Scotland with a minor injury.
Elanga, 19, made all three of United’s pre-season friendlies and scored impressively in the 4-2 loss to Queens Park Rangers and the 2-2 draw with Brentford.

The Swede did not travel with the team to St Andrews on Monday due to a “minor issue” and Elanga is said to have received treatment at United Carrington training complex this week.

Elanga appeared in a social media post earlier this week on United channels, but was filmed at Pennyhill Park, where United was based for their first UK training camp last month.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last week that the decision to keep Elanga or let him go on loan was becoming a “big one” as the August 31 transfer deadline looms.

“We want to play a game of pressing. There are no frills. If you ask him at half time to run to the cricket ground and bring us a drink, he will. He’s that kind of boy.

“He was brought up in academy and these are the boys you like to see succeed as a manager and if they give you reason to play them you have to play them. “
