Louis van Gaal confirms massive injury blow to influential midfielder

Manchester United’s injury problems have been easing up a lot recently, but Louis van Gaal today confirmed a huge blow to the sole man who is currently on the Old Trafford treatment table; Bastian Schweinsteiger. He has a severe knee injury and is done for the season.

“Schweinsteiger has more or less the same injury as Wayne Rooney.” Louis van Gaal said. “He is starting his rehabilitation. We have to see how it heals.”

This is a huge blow for Bastian Schweinsteiger himself more than anyone else. The German is all-but confirmed to miss the European Championships this summer, and his season at Manchester United is done which is a shame.

This was always a risk with bringing in the 31-year old with his medical record, and until February time it was all looking rosy regarding Schweinsteiger.

Hopefully he can not get too down about the situation and get a full pre-season under his belt for Manchester United, before the 2016/17 campaign.
