Guillermo Varela training ahead of Tottenham Hotspur after mini exodus

by Sam Peoples

Guillermo Varela looked in good spirits in training ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Varela has enjoyed a rise to prominence at Man United beginning in December of last month but he has not featured for Louis van Gaal’s side since they were knocked out of the Europa League by Liverpool in March.

Matteo Darmian has instead been preferred in recent weeks but the Italian hasn’t really grabbed his chance. Varela will be hoping to get back into the starting XI against Spurs:

As well as Darmian, Varela is competing with Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young for a spot in defence.

The Uruguayan performed well under difficult circumstances over the festive period but there is a question mark over whether he has the quality to make himself a long-term success at Old Trafford.

United are heading into a crucial run of fixtures and Varela may find it tough to force his way into the side.
