Raphael Varane shares injury update after missing France training session

“I’m at 100% for tomorrow [to face South Africa],” confirmed Raphael Varane to reporters in a press conference for France, as quoted by RMC Sport.

“It was a hit, but it was just painful.”

Varane sparked injury fears after being in visible pain and coming off the field during Les Bleus’ clash with the Ivory Coast.

He even missed a training session for France but thankfully, the injury is not as serious as one may have imagined.

If the Manchester United defender is able to stay fit through this game, he could be in contention to play Leicester City on April 2.

Why Rangnick wants referees to train with Premier League clubs next season — explained

In a recent summit between Premier League managers and referees’ boss Mike Riley, Ralf Rangnick proposed to allow referees to train with Premier League clubs next season, reports the Daily Mail.

The interim Manchester United boss feels this would improve the relationships between referees and players after a season filled with several on-field controversies.

Rangnick stressed the need for referees to ‘get to know’ players better instead of meeting them for the first time on the field.

The Daily Mail further adds that the proposal was ‘backed by the rest of the room’, with the change expected to happen in 2022/23.

Referee officials will be allowed to use the facilities at various Premier League training grounds. Although the details are yet to be finalised, these refs could also officiate training ground matches to understand their own roles better.

Those present at the meeting also agreed that doing so would ‘potentially break down negative preconceptions’ between referees and footballers.

Do you think this is a good idea, Reds? Why/Why not?
