With an injury bug this bad, you’d think God had abandoned Manchester United.
The Red Devils are on the verge of losing another key piece of their offensive and defensive lineup during the A-match this November. First Marcus Rashford, then Andre Onana, have all been ruled out.
First, Rashford left the field after colliding with Trent Alexander-Arnold in England’s Euro2024 qualifier against Malta. He was in too much pain to continue and was eventually replaced by Cole Palmer.
This time, it was Onana who went down. He was a late substitute in Cameroon’s last game, an African qualifier for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup against Mauritius. Onana’s condition didn’t look good, as goalkeepers don’t usually make substitutions unless there are injuries or other issues. In fact, he was limping.
“A medical examination of Onana revealed an injury to the pubis, one of the pelvic bones,” The Athletic reported. The Cameroon Football Association also confirmed that Onana will miss the upcoming game against Libya.
Both Rashford and Onana have been indispensable for United this season. Even if Rashford has been struggling lately, he’s still going to have to hold down a spot on a team that is so thin on offense. Onana is arguably United’s only real goalkeeper. He had some concerns at the start of the season, but he’s been building his credibility lately with some stunning saves.
United have been dealing with a serious injury crisis this season. Key players in the defense, such as Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw, have been out for extended periods of time. Add to that the injuries to Casemiro, Jonny Evans, and others.
To add insult to injury, Rashford and Onana are also out. This couldn’t be more tragic for the Red Devils, who have big games coming up, from the Premier League to the Champions League. 보스토토 주소
Rashford and Onana are expected to undergo further assessments in Manchester before a timeframe for their recovery can be determined.
United travel to Everton in the Premier League on Sept. 27, followed by a trip to Galatasaray on Sept. 30.
