Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has confirmed Christian Atsu will not be available for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United due to injury.
The sprinter missed Ghana’s world cup qualifier final match against Egypt last Sunday after picking a knock in training.
Prior to the injury Atsu had to be substituted in the Magpies game against Bournemouth having limped on the field.
However, he traveled for International duty where he picked a knock in training.
Ahead of the weekend game against United, former Liverpool manager confirmed the winger could not be fit to feature for his side on Saturday.
