Manchester United’s injury situation has been nothing short of a nightmare for Louis van Gaal this term, and it has once again been made a whole lot worse. The manager met the media today, and confirmed that Ashley Young has suffered a severe injury, and has been ruled out for ‘a long time’.
The 30-year old winger hobbled off in the first half of the game against Liverpool, and has already undergone surgery on the affected area, meaning it’ll probably be tough for him to make his return this season, which is huge news for Louis van Gaal.
Ashley Young offered United someone who can play in various positions on the field, but most recently as a full-back. With Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Antonio Valencia and now Ashley Young injured, this leaves Manchester United in a real mess as we enter the business end of the season.
