Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the latest Man United player to suffer a longer-term injury problem…
The story of Manchester United’s season is injuries. Erik ten Hag is effectively working with one hand tied behind his back at all times. Or that’s what it must feel like at least…
There have been too many problems to list. The gaffer has been dealing with multiple long-term injuries and this week, that name of players grew by one in the form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
It can be argued that the Englishman has been among United’s best players to start this season. He’s had that right-back position on lock, defending as excellently as ever while improving in the final third.
However on Monday, the club have confirmed that the player is now set for a ‘period on the sidelines’ after an injury which he suffered late on in the Brighton game on Saturday.
The Spider is now out for ‘several weeks’, though no information has been provided on the problem area. It was stated that Wan-Bissaka was dealing with an illness last week, hence, he’d only play five minutes off the bench during the 3-1 loss to Brighton over the weekend.
Honestly, you just cannot make it up… United players are dropping like flies and it doesn’t sound like we’re going to see Wan-Bissaka again before November.
Suddenly, Diogo Dalot is the only fit, senior right-back, while Sergio Reguilon is the only senior left-back available. One more injury in those full-back positions and the Red Devils are in serious trouble. The fact that the club are only taking five defenders to Bayern Munich away is damining. The Reds are also taking four goalkeepers, just to put that into context.
Get well soon, Aaron.
Do you think Diogo Dalot will be able to hold down that right-hand side on his own? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
