Manchester United Football Club spent £4million to bring Nick Powell in from Crewe Alexandra back in 2012, and the starlet burst onto the scene in stunning style as he found the back of the net with a pearler of a strike from outside the area.
However, since his debut season his career has been riddled with niggling injuries that have certainly hampered his development. The 21-year old returned to action just before Christmas, but once again, he has been hit with another injury concern.
This time its a problem with his thigh, the Manchester Evening News claim. This explains why he was missing from Manchester United’s U21 side that beat Tottenham 3-1 last night, rather than a loan move away from Old Trafford being in the offing.
There is only so many injuries you’re body and mind can take before you’ve had enough. It must be really disconcerting for Powell himself, and honestly, I can see him calling it a day if this keeps happening for much longer.
