Manchester United hit with major injury blow as star picks up knock during international game

Manchester United’s coaching staff will be preparing heavily for the upcoming derby on September 10th, with Mourinho’s men starting the season with a perfect three wins out of three; a run they’ll be keen on continuing. City themselves are on an excellent win streak too, matching us with a 100% win record.

Ahead of that game, Jose Mourinho could’ve been dealt a cruel injury blow, as Armenian international Henrikh Mkhitaryan was subbed off due to a heavily collision suffered in their friendly last night.

The 27-year-old was hauled off in the 36th minute due to the issue, and the injury seems to be relating to his ribs. The obvious worst case scenario is a broken or cracked rib which could keep him out of action for a considerable amount of time.

However, journalist Artur Petrosyan seems fairly confident that Mkhitaryan was brought off as a precaution, and hopefully, it isn’t anything too serious.
