Manchester United will soon have Alejandro Garnacho back to the squad while their top center-back Lisandro Martinez undergoes surgery.
The Red Devils were dealt a grave injury blow when Alejandro Garnacho picked up an excrutiating ankle injury in Southampton Vs Manchester United Premier League clash before the international break.
Garnacho just managed few minutes in the game after coming on in the 73rd minute only to be forced out in the 82nd minute after a strong but fair challenge by Kyle Walker-Peters.
He was forced off the pitch due to the injury and was spotted in crutches trying to exit Old Trafford after the game.
After breaking into Erik Ten Hag’s first team, Alejandro Garnacho has been prolific for the Red Devils and was tipped to make Argentina’s 2022 World Cup squad.
However, he failed out but was ready to make his debut for the team after Lionel Scaloni included him in the double header international friendly against Panama and Curacao during the March international break.
The 18-year-old ended up spending the international break on the sidelines, missing a chance to make his debut for Albiceleste.
Garnacho missed Premier League and Europa League action for Manchester United after the international break.
Now, he is closing in on his Manchester United return since March.
The promising winger took to his social media handle to share a footage of himself wearing football boots and doing away with crutches.
Before the injury blow in March, Alejandro Garnacho made 28 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 3 goals with 2 assists.
His imminent return will be a big boost to Manchester United amidst the fresh injury blow that has rocked the team with three new players joining the list.
The Red Devils suffered a double injury blow in the Europa League quarterfinal first leg clash against Sevilla at Old Trafford.
Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane were forced out of the game with Lisandro Martinez ruled out for the rest of the season.
The former Ajax center-back suffered a fracture to his metatarsal bone and has undergone surgery but will spent the rest of the season on the sidelines.
Raphael Varane is reportedly set to miss few games but will return to the team before the end of the season.
The club’s poster boy Marcus Rashford is also on the list after he picked up a groin issue against Everton.
Marcel Sabitzer is Manchester United’s latest injury blow. The Bayern Munich loanee to Old Trafford was forced out in the warmup ahead of Nottingham Forest clash with a groin issue.
Erik Ten Hag has described Manchester United’s injury situation as a “mess.” Nevertheless, the Dutch tactician will welcome the speedy recovery of Alejandro Garnacho and will expect more players to return for their treble-chasing season.
