Man United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is an injury concern for the Red Devils’ game against Ralf Rangnick.
Ralf Rangnick’s Reds secured a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last night, with the new Manchester United manager naming a completely different XI for the Champions League clash.
No doubt the German wants to get a proper look at the rest of the playing squad, with this match giving him the perfect opportunity to do exactly that.
Youngsters like Anthony Elanga and Amad both started, as did Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has seriously struggled of late.
Well, the Spider’s situation has only worsened after last night. Not only was it a poor performance from the right-back. He’s also now nursing an injury issue…
United are now sweating on the fitness of the star for their weekend game vs Norwich City, with the Englishman suffering two knocks against Young Boys.
Check out what the gaffer had to say on Wan-Bissaka’s availability here:
“Aaron got two knocks – one on the knee and one on the wrist,” Rangnick told the media, including ManUtd.com. “So we’ll have to see how this develops by Saturday.”
Honestly, as things stand, Diogo Dalot feels like the undisputed first-choice right-back. The Portugal international was our standout performer against Crystal Palace, while Wan-Bissaka’s displays have been nothing but uninspiring this season.
Now he’s nursing multiple problems, I don’t see any way how he’s even under serious consideration to start this coming Saturday.
At this point, I’m seriously worried about Wan-Bissaka. There’s been little-to-no development as a player in his two-year stint in Manchester. Sure, he’s exceptional as ever when it comes to recovery tackles, but the lack of offensive output will only be further highlighted in this attack-minded system Rangnick likes to deploy.
Suddenly, Wan-Bissaka has gone from one of the first names on the team sheet to someone who may struggle to make the substitutes bench. Only he can fix that by improving his performance levels.
