Man United fans react as influential star gets injured

Man United fans react as influential star gets injured

Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has caused concern after suffering what appears to be knee ligament damage whilst on worldwide duty.

It's claimed Fellaini will be out for a "couple of weeks" after the scan confirmed a "MCL sprain". "Get well soon Marouane!"

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez admitted after the game he feared the worse when Fellaini went down.

"We are all anxious about Fellaini", Martinez was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. "We fear that there's ligament damage", confirmed the former Everton manager.

United are already facing an ever-growing injury list and now face the prospect of facing bitter rivals Liverpool next Saturday without Paul Pogba and Fellaini. "Ligaments, left knee. More news tomorrow".

The 29-year-old suffered the injury in Belgium's 4-3 victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina in Saturday's World Cup qualifier at Stadion Grbavica.

United's forgotten man Ander Herrera may therefore fill in for Fellaini for the three away games.

Fellaini has scored four goals and provided one assist this season already for Manchester United, who return to action after the worldwide break with a trip to Liverpool in the Premier League next Saturday.

Jose Mourinho is likely to be furious with the injury to one of United's recent star performers as he prepares for a trip to face Liverpool in the Premier League next week.

Fellaini had been deputising for Pogba and he scored twice in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace last weekend. Manchester United are now placed at second position in the Premier League with six wins and one draw in seven matches.
