Anthony Elanga on road to recovery from shoulder injury

Anthony Elanga has taken to Instagram, offering Manchester United fans an injury update.

Manchester United Football Club have always offered youth an opportunity. If you’re good enough, you’re old enough.

Amongst those who has to be considered as one of the next in line is Anthony Elanga. In 2019/20, the left-winger was named Youth Player of the Year, which speaks to his incredible talent.

Anyway, in mid-February, Elanga would go down with a shoulder injury. At the time, the Swede was sitting as U23s top scorer with eight strikes. Now, though, Elanga has taken to his Instagram page to offer the fans an injury update.

The talented teenager would post a photo of himself in a cryotherapy chamber, which is used to help rehabilitate his injury. Elanga would also post a sand timer emoji, which hints that a return may not be too far away.

Back in February, we covered a claim which stated Elanga was ahead of schedule in regards to making his injury return. At that time, a playing recovery was thought to be a ‘few weeks’ away.

We’re now approaching the three-week mark, which leads us to believe that Elanga’s playing return could be pretty close. Given how well he was playing before picking up this serious shoulder issue, this will be a massive lift to the U23s side.

Sadly, this injury probably ends any hope of a potential Elanga first-team debut this season, though I don’t doubt his chance probably isn’t too far away if he returns to the incredible form he was showing beforehand.

United’s U23s currently sit fourth in the PL2 table, so they still have some work to do if they want to catch City at the top.
