Every word from Erik ten Hag ahead of Manchester United's Europa League clash vs FC Sheriff

Erik ten Hag spoke to media on Wednesday ahead of Manchester United's Europa League clash against FC Sheriff.

The manager was asked about multiple different topics, including the absence of Marcus Rashford from the travelling squad.

David de Gea was sat alongside his coach as he answered questions too.

Here is every word from the United manager ahead of the tie in Moldavia:

What is the situation with Marcus Rashford?

"He’s not available, a consequence after Arsenal. He has a muscle injury."

How long until he returns?

"I don't think too long [until he returns], but I cannot say how long. It's not really bad, we expect him back soon."

Can Rashford make the England squad?

"It's quite obvious and quite clear [that he can]. I think in this season he's showing his great potential and quality."

Moldovan fans want to know whether Cristiano Ronaldo will start tomorrow...

"I'm sorry but the Moldovan fans will have to wait until tomorrow."

The abilities of FC Sheriff...

"It's quite clear, they beat Real Madrid and Shakhtar, they are capable. We have to make it our game but we are conscious of that fact. They are a serious and decent opponent and we have to play our best for the win."

On the game tomorrow...

"Pressure is for every game, we have to win every game. When you lose the first game, you have to win the second, so we know what our task is. We always play a strong team, so also tomorrow we will play a strong team."

On preparation for the game following cancelled fixtures...

"I think our players are used to playing every third day a game. If that's not the case, we use the days for training sessions. We are well prepared for the game tomorrow."

Will players sign autographs after the game?

"After the game, we have to go straight to the airport and return to Manchester, all of the players have international duties."
