Can Manchester United do this alone?
Ahead of the Champions League clash with Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich, Manchester United face more woes than positives with the confirmation of Aaron Wan Bissaka injury.
The Manchester United Right-Back is reportedly set to face a 2-month spell on the sidelines for the Red Devils after picking up an injury in the defeat versus Brighton and Hove Albion.
After a disappointing result, Erik ten Hag’s team are now set to be miss at least 6 key players from the squad as the season builds on from the last 5 games played.
The Old Trafford side will be missing new signings Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat alongside Aaron Wan Bissaka who returned to tremendous form since the start of Erik ten Hag’s reign as club manager.
The unfortunate news was officially confirmed by the Red Devils through a statement posted on their website this past Monday.
It was revealed that the talented defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is now set for an extended period on the sidelines, owing to an injury he suffered during the closing moments of their Premier League encounter against Brighton & Hove Albion this past Saturday.
Wan-Bissaka’s involvement in the match against Brighton was itself noteworthy, as he had initially started the game on the bench due to a bout of illness he had been grappling with throughout the week.
Despite this setback, he was introduced as an 85th-minute substitute in an effort to bolster Manchester United’s efforts on the field.
With the situation of Jadon Sancho not clear, and grappling with Antony’s domestic violence case, troubled times await the Red Devils.
Manchester United finds themselves placed in Group A for this season’s UEFA Champions League, alongside formidable opponents Bayern Munich, Copenhagen, and Galatasaray, with Bayern Munich the tougher nut to crack.
