Reflecting on the initiative on social media on Saturday, March 30, Ayra Starr emphasized the importance of ensuring everyone has access to good water, expressing gratitude for the partnership that made the project possible.

5. Raphael Varane provides injury update after being forced off at halftime during the clash with Brentford

Raphael Varane has issued an optimistic injury update after going off at halftime of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Brentford. United have been plagued by injuries all season, particularly in defense, and encountered more problems on Saturday at Brentford. Varane had to go off at halftime at the Gtech Community Stadium in the 1-1 draw, while center-back partner Lindelof was also substituted in the second half due to a knock. Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez, who has only just gotten back himself, replaced the duo.

The French defender told the press that the injury was “not too bad,” which will be a relief for the Red Devils. Varane’s injury also comes at a time when his future at the club is uncertain. The defender’s contract is up at the end of the season, and it’s not certain yet if a new deal will be offered to the 30-year-old. Varane has also reportedly attracted interest from Al-Nassr.
