Manchester United centre-back Raphael Varane injured himself in the Red Devils’ 2-2 draw with Atalanta in Champions League (football scores). Now, it seems, Varane is on the sidelines for 3 or 4 weeks due to injury, and not the one ailing him previously (the football news).
Varane, who had just recently returned to action after a groin injury, could miss a month with a hamstring problem.
Prior to this, Varane had to miss games against Leicester City, Atalanta, and Liverpool due to a groin injury. And in the absence of the defender, United conceded as many as 11 goals.
United fans praised his return to action after Saturday’s 3-0 triumph against Tottenham. But he had to again miss a game, the return match against La Dea due to a new injury.
In the 2-2 tie in Bergamo on Tuesday night, the Frenchman played only 38 minutes.
Varane Is on the Sidelines for 3 or 4 Weeks Due to Injury
Now, Varane has undergone assessment by United on Wednesday. And Manchester United expect his absence to last three to four weeks, according to L’Equipe.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be without his best defence until the beginning of December as a result of this.
Varane may thus miss five games in total – against Manchester City, Watford, Villarreal, Chelsea, and Arsenal. He is also doubt for a sixth against Crystal Palace.
In addition, the 28-year-old would likely be out of France’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Finland too.
