Manchester United’s injury concerns grow as two more players sidelined

Manchester United’s injury-hit season looks set to continue, as two more players have been injured over the past few days. It feels like as soon as we get one player back, we lose two more, and this time its the duo of Rafael Da Silva and Marcos Rojo who are sidelined, with the latter look set to miss a lot of football…

The club confirmed that Rafael picked up an injury in training on Thursday, causing him to miss the Manchester derby this weekend. The problem, and the extent of his injury isn’t known as this time, but its a huge blow considering he is the only natural right-back we have in our squad at the moment.

Marcos Rojo on the other hand dislocated his shoulder during the game. If he needs surgery, he could be out for around ten weeks – ruling him out of action until mid-January. That’d be hugely disappointing for more than one reason – before he came to United he has only missed a combined total of ten senior games due to injury, but he could well double that total before he kicks a ball again. His passion, aggression and desire on the pitch will be massively missed, despite his sometimes rash decision making.

Who’ll be the bigger loss? Rafael or Marcos Rojo? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
