Huge injury blow for Ten Hag as midfield superstar a doubt for Spurs

Posted by

The FA Cup final victory by Manchester United against Brighton at Wembley was marred by the discovery that Bruno Fernandes was hurt.

The Portuguese player appeared to roll his ankle during a challenge in the first half of the match. He was later observed limping, and in the first session of extra time, he was replaced.

He would have taken one of the penalties if he had been in shape, but the management chose to remove him out of concern for his safety.

Bruno’s injury makes him questionable for the Spurs game.

According to ESPN, the Portuguese may miss Thursday’s crucial match against Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium due to an ankle injury.

According to sources who spoke to ESPN, there were discussions on the bench at the time of Fernandes’ injury and at halftime about replacing him, but he was adamant about playing on. Eventually, in the first period of extra time, he was substituted.

“The Portugal midfielder did not have a protective boot on when he departed Wembley Stadium following the game.

The decision regarding whether or not he may practise with the team this week and play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be made on Monday, according to sources who spoke to ESPN.

The current top-four struggle between the Reds, Newcastle, and Spurs has given the game extra weight.

After the London team was humiliated by the Magpies, United may increase their lead to nine points with a win and still have two games remaining.

United has had difficulty without Bruno.

United has struggled this season without Fernandes, suffering three of its four losses when he has not started. The most recent one was last week’s humiliation at the hands of Sevilla.

United’s midfielders have sustained numerous injuries throughout the course of the season, and manager Erik ten Hag is well aware of the need to improve in that area.

The value of the Portugal international is clear to all, but the team should sign a capable backup player because he cannot be counted on to play in every match.

Donny van de Beek’s attempt to fill that role earlier in the season was unsuccessful, so a versatile player who can play all in the middle of the park would be the ideal addition.
