Manchester United tactician Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has established the massive blow that midfielder Scottish Scott McTominay could be out injured for as long as eight weeks.
22-year-old went off at the end of the Brighton game on a stretcher, and it seems like it could be bad news for the in-form young prospect.
Speaking after the game versus the Brighton, as quoted by the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he’s had a similar injury before.
The Norwegian boss said Scott McTominay would need a scan on his ankle and that it could be anywhere from two weeks out to a worst-case situation eight weeks.
This is not the news the Red Devils fans will want to hear after the talented youngster’s massively improved performances this campaign.
The Scotland international has become a hugely important part of this Ole Gunnar Solskjarer’s side and would be a significant loss if he had to sit out that much of the season.
Fred also looked a lot better for Man United today, but in general, the likes of Andreas Pereira and Nemanja Matic don’t seem enough of a backup for someone of Scott McTominay’s importance.
