Man United manager provides injury update on 22-year-old midfielder

Red Devils coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on footballer Scott McTominay after he had to go off against Partizan Belgrade. The 22-year-old midfielder has been a key figure for Man United this campaign and supporters won’t have been too pleased to see him hobble off in Thursday night’s Europa League game.

Red Devils don’t have many other convincing options in midfield at the moment, so could really do without losing a key figure like Scott for a lengthy period of time. Unfortunately, speaking after the match, the Norwegian boss didn’t sound too optimistic about a quick come back for McTominay.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær said Scotland international’s situation “didn’t look too good” and said he could only hope Scott would make it back for the clash with Brighton on the weekend. He is a regular member of the national team line-up and could miss the international break which isn’t good for his career.

Red Devils will likely provide more information on Scottish midfielder in the coming days, but for now, Man United fans will have to hope the midfielder’s situation isn’t as bad as it looked against Partizan. Paul Pogba also has a severe injury and won’t be able to play until December.

Man United started this campaign terribly as they are in a 10th place in the Premier League table. Red Devils signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Harry Maguire from Leicester City, Daniel James from Swansea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace.
