Marcel Sabitzer returns to Manchester United training ahead of Real Betis trip

Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer is back from injury and has returned to training.

BBC reporter Simon Stone has posted a picture of the Austrian with the rest of his teammates.

Sabitzer missed the Red Devils’ last two games due to an unspecified injury setback.

Man United return to action tomorrow and the Bayern Munich loanee could be available for selection.

Erik ten Hag’s side face Real Betis in Spain in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie.

They won 4-1 in the first leg at Old Trafford last Thursday and are virtually through to the quarter-final.

Sabitzer could return to action after missing that game and last weekend’s goalless draw against Southampton.

The 28-year-old joined Man United from the Bundesliga club in January until the end of the season.

He has featured in seven games across all competitions and is eyeing a permanent switch in the summer.

Sabitzer was signed after Christian Eriksen picked up a long-term injury in January.

Fans would have been left fearing the worst after Ten Hag revealed that he was unavailable.

Sabitzer was named in the Austria squad yesterday by Ralf Rangnick for their upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Azerbaijan and Estonia.

It allayed fears of a serious injury, and the update from Stone shows that he is back on his feet.

It comes as a huge boost as injuries and suspensions are the last thing Man United want at this point of their campaign.
