“It it now clear to me that it was the problem at Manchester United. You can’t deny it. I saw it from the Manchester United players in my squad. It is not Erik ten Hag’s fault to be honest”-Gareth Southgate issues double Man United injury update ahead of England clashas he breaks silence on Manchester United biggest issues.

Gareth Southgate has provided an injury update on Manchester United duo Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire ahead of England’s friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina.


England will be without Shaw and Maguire on Monday evening at St. George’s Park as they face Bosnia and Herzegovina. Both players missed Erik ten Hag’s final fixtures of the season, including the FA Cup victory over Manchester City at Wembley, but were still called up to England’s preliminary 2024 European Championship squad.


Shaw and Maguire have been key players for Southgate’s England teams in recent tournaments, which is why they were included despite their injuries. Maguire is expected to be fit for England’s first game of the tournament against Serbia on June 16, but Shaw’s availability remains uncertain.


Speaking to journalists on Sunday, Southgate provided an update on Shaw, Maguire, and Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon.


“All are progressing well, so we’re pleased with their progress,” he said. “None of them will be involved tomorrow.


“The same goes for Bukayo Saka, and probably John Stones as well. Everyone else will be involved.”


When asked for more details about Shaw, Maguire, and Gordon, Southgate added, “Not really. They’re all progressing well.


“Antony has a good chance to be available for Friday’s game against Iceland. For Shaw and Maguire, it’s more unlikely, but we’ll just see how quickly they can recover.”


Shaw and Maguire’s absence from Erik ten Hag’s final fixtures of the season, including the FA Cup triumph, didn’t prevent their inclusion in the preliminary squad for the 2024 European Championship. Maguire is expected to recover in time for the tournament opener against Serbia on June 16, but Shaw’s fitness is more doubtful.
