Within a few days, Roberto Martinez may come with his next selection for the Red Devils, who play international matches against Switzerland, England and Denmark in November. Hopefully it will be less of a puzzle for the national coach than in September and October, when a lot of strong men dropped out. Although one player will certainly not be there this time.
On Thursday, Timothy Castagne was a notable absentee from Leicester City for the Europa League game against AEK Athens. Trainer Brendan Rodgers explained that the right back is injured. “It is not serious, but I expect that Timothy will not be fit again until after the international break,” he told the BBC.
That is a setback for Martinez, because Castagne was one of the only players to play in all games in October. On the left he was knocked out by Thorgan Hazard and on the right he seemed to be close to a starting place due to the lesser performance of Thomas Meunier.
