Manchester United launch internal investigations into the club

Manchester United has initiated an internal investigation into the spate of injuries plaguing the club this season, as the team grapples with an ongoing crisis that has hindered manager Ten Hag’s ability to field a full-strength lineup in several matches.

The club’s injury woes have persisted throughout the season, with defenders Martinez and Lindelof being the latest casualties, both sidelined for a month due to calf and hamstring injuries respectively. They join Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia on the injury list, further exacerbating United’s defensive frailties.

When questioned about the alarming frequency of injuries, Ten Hag commented on Wednesday, stating, “We have an idea but we will work on that internally and deal with it.”

He emphasized the urgency of the situation, asserting,

“There are no more issues, we don’t need any! In the front line and midfield, we are okay and we have options there, but in the back line, we have a lack of options.”

However, there was a glimmer of hope for United fans as Ten Hag revealed that Rapha Varane and Jonny Evans were back in training, with Harry Maguire also returning to the fold recently.

Attributing United’s injury crisis to an “overload” of games, Ten Hag pointed out that other Premier League teams have also grappled with similar challenges.

“You can’t prevent it, it’s not only us who’ve had this,” he remarked.

“The standards of the Premier League from an intensity perspective are so high, the overload of the schedule, international football is so huge, and we have internationals in our squad.”

With Manchester City, Liverpool, and Newcastle also facing injury concerns, Ten Hag highlighted the demanding nature of the Premier League and the toll it takes on players.

“We don’t train because we recover then you go up to the next game,” he added, underscoring the relentless nature of the league schedule.
