Marcel Sabitzer injury fears have been eased, with the midfielder called up for international duty.
Manchester United Football Club brought in Marcel Sabitzer on transfer deadline day, due to an injury suffered by Christian Eriksen.
The man from Bayern Munich has been pretty impressive during his limited minutes thus far, though he too was struck down by injury.
Erik ten Hag remained tight-lipped on the severity of Sabitzer’s problem, though now we’ve been given a hint that his injury comeback may not be too far away.
The official club website confirmed that the United star has been called up for international duty during the upcoming break at the end of March.
We’re still unclear as to whether Sabitzer will be available to take on either Real Betis or Fulham before the international break begins, though I’d be surprised if we see him in action – given I don’t think he’s back in training quite yet.
With Casemiro now suspended, Sabitzer does have a big part to play upon return of domestic football next month. He’ll likely be a certainty to start in United’s three league games, giving the man from Austria a real chance to prove that he’s deserving of regular starts.
I genuinely like the way Sabitzer plays. He can also be deployed in a variety of different systems and setups due to his versatility. He can sit deep, play as a true box-to-box or even be deployed further forward if necessary.
Hopefully, the Bayern Munich loanee can acquit himself well, proving to United that he’s worthy of a permanent contract here at Old Trafford. I actually think this could be an astute signing if Ten Hag decides to sanction this deal.
