When it rains, it pours. For Manchester United, players had begun to return back from injury, but once again, the problems are seemingly building up once again.
This time around, it’s Nemanja Matic. Quoting the Serbian FA, the Manchester Evening News say that the midfielder has withdrawn from the squad for their upcoming games against both Portugal and Germany.
Although the problem area hasn’t been made known, this is another blow for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Matic had only just returned from injury a week or so ago – and to lose him again – for any period of time – could be pivotal.
Matic joins both Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial in pulling out of the upcoming international break with problems, which further leads me to believe that this Solskjaer regime is taking it’s toll on players’ bodies. Obviously, in time, these guys will adapt to the gruelling style that the Baby Faced Assassin likes to play – but for now, the club just have to deal with it.
Thankfully, Scott McTominay has been in brilliant form in Matic’s absence, and I actually thought he was hard-done-by when he was usurped from the team at the first possible opportunity.
Hopefully, the youngster comes back into the team and shows that he’s clearly good enough to play in Matic’s absence.
