Confirmed: Man United’s 28-year-old has surgery on groin injury

Late last night, rumours emerged suggesting that Juan Mata had to have surgery on a groin injury following an incident in training. The 28-year-old hadn’t been called up to the Spain national squad, so I’m not quite sure how he managed to pick up such a major issue.

Now, our fears have been confirmed by Manchester United themselves, who have stated that the surgery has been completed and we’ll receive further updates about his situation in due course.

Honestly, this couldn’t have come at a worse time for Jose Mourinho and the Old Trafford crowd. April is already a hectic month as we’re still fighting it out in the Europa League, and our squad seems to be getting thinner and thinner.

This weekend’s game against West Brom could be a real problematic one. We’re now without Herrera and Ibrahimovic through suspension, alongside Mata, Pogba, Smalling and Jones who are out with injuries. It’s definitely a concern for Mourinho and his coaching staff.

Mata has been one of those guys that has always kept himself fit and can always be relied upon, and when you hear that he has had to have surgery, I personally wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see him on the field again until next season.
