Graphic: The cost of Manchester United’s injuries revealed

Manchester United are a club that always seem to be plagued by injuries, and that has certainly been no different this season. Louis van Gaal is set to be without Luke Shaw for the rest of the campaign, as well as Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia for the long-term.

The guys over at PhysioRoom have put together a table, adding up the costs of how much injuries have hurt clubs finances, and it comes as no surprise that Manchester United sit right near the top of that last for the 2014/15 season.

I’m not sure how they work out the exact figures and facts, but our injuries cost us a whopping £18.6million, with players spending a combined 45 months on the treatment table – which is obviously huge for a twelve month period.

I dread to think what the figures will be like this year, as Luke Shaw will miss almost 10 months alone!
