Manger Louis Van Gaal has confirmed that striker James Wilson not be traveling with rest of the squad for Manchester United’s Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night. According to Van Gaal, Wilson is ill and is not fit to travel.

However, manager also confirmed that he will have 20 players traveling with him including Jesse Lingard, Sergio Romero and Antonio Valencia. The South American duo return from their injuries, while Lingard impressed against Everton and has earned his spot in the team.

“I’ll take 20 players with me. It’s a four-hour flight so, if a player gets ill, I have the other player in my environment.

“Of course that was the reason [Romero and Valencia were absent at Everton]. They have to cope with the jet-lag so I didn’t think it was wise to take them with us against Everton.”

Van Gaal dropped a slight hint on the team news when he said that he will play the same team as they did a good job against Everton. Van Gaal said: “Now they have played very well, so I am not stupid, I won’t change too much on Wednesday,”

Van Gaal said: “Willo was a little bit ill – Wilson as he is named but, for us, it is Willo – so he shall not travel with us.”
