The Red Devils will have to play for a few weeks without the Argentine star.
Manchester United star Alejandro Garnacho has reportedly suffered a sprained talofibular ligament in his right ankle.
A tackle from Kyle Walker-Peters saw Garnacho leave Old Trafford in crutches after Man Utd‘s goalless draw against Southampton last weekend.
Initial reports claimed the forward’s injury wasn’t serious. However, it seems Erik ten Hag will have to play without the striker for a few weeks.
According to TyC Sports, Garnacho’s injury is “worse than expected”. The 18-year-old will most likely miss Argentina’s upcoming friendlies later this month.
“It is difficult to put into words how I’m feeling right now,” Garnacho wrote on Instagram after his injury. “Unfortunately I will not be able to help my team and team mates in the upcoming games in what is a very important part of the season for us at Manchester United.
“I am disappointed to also miss the opportunity to be with my team mates of the Argentinian National Team in what would have been a great and proud moment for me and my family.
“This is part of football and our profession, however, I am already focused in my recovery. God has taught me to never give up and I will make sure I am back stronger than ever!”
