Ah, the international break… Manchester United are currently on a two-week hiatus due to the latest round of World Cup Qualifiers, and I think it’s fair to say that injury was always going to be a major concern of Jose Mourinho’s…
Well, his worst fears have now become a reality, as Marouane Fellaini had to be subbed off as Belgium took on Bosnia in what was a meaningless game as Roberto Martinez’s men had already qualified.
Journalist Kristof Terreur confirmed that, Fellaini, 29, had to be hauled off. Furthermore, as soon as our midfield left the field, Belgium conceded two quick goals and that led to them giving up a lead.

Whilst watching the fixture, it seemed to be his left-knee that was troubling Fellaini, which isn’t an injury to be taken lightly.
This is why I just don’t like international football anymore. Players constantly come back to Old Trafford with some sort of problem that requires some time out on the sidelines, and it’s an irritant because, at the end of the day, they aren’t the ones paying his wages; United are.
At this point in time we don’t know the severity of the problem, so we’ll just have to sit tight and pray he’s fit to take on Liverpool on Saturday.
