Man United midfielder, Marcel Sabitzer, is dealing with a knee injury, Ralf Rangnick has confirmed.
Manchester United were looking a little light in midfield before the most recent international break – largely due to Casemiro’s suspension coupled with Christian Eriksen’s injury.
Marcel Sabitzer filled in before jetting away to Austria for international duty. He’d also shine for Ralf Rangnick while playing for his country.
However, Sabitzer has picked up a new problem… The official club website confirmed the news, via Sabitzer’s international manager Rangnick.
According to the gaffer, the midfielder has a knee injury, dealing United an unwanted injury blow ahead of domestic football’s return this coming weekend.
Thankfully, Rangnick didn’t seem too concerned about the severity of the issue, though as displayed with Alejandro Garnacho’s problem, you just never know…
No doubt United will conduct their own medical tests on Sabi upon his return to manager. After which, they’ll have a clearer idea of how long he’ll be out for.
Suddenly, United are light again. The only fit, senior, central midfielders are Fred and Scott McTominay. Bruno Fernandes can also drop back there if absolutely necessary – though it’s less than ideal.
It just comes at a pretty bad time, particularly as earlier today, we covered a story suggesting that Sabitzer would be more than happy to remain at the club beyond his current loan period.
He’s clearly enjoying himself here in Manchester – if only Sabitzer was fully able to showcase his talents, rather than picking up these small injury issues.
Let’s hope the problem isn’t too serious. No doubt Ten Hag will inform us all on Sabitzer’s availability when he meets the media pre-Newcastle United away this weekend.
