Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera limped out of the International Champions Cup match against Real Madrid at the Levi’s stadium on Saturday as he suffered a hip complaint, an injury. Manager, Jose Mourinho stated that for the 27-year-old having limped out of the match against the Spanish champions meant that he may have sustained an injury already. The player joins other teammates on the treatment table even with the season not yet underway.
Speaking after the game, Jose said: “It must at least be very painful because for Ander to come off, it has to be very painful,” the manager told reporters.
“I want to wait and see what it is.”
Herrera had only come on at halftime but limped off soon after with apparent discomfort in his hips and waist, and was replaced by Scott Mctominay. Other players that are listed as injured are as follows.
The left back, who has been beset by injuries in his Old Trafford career, is expected back from a foot injury in September meaning that he has no hope of playing pre-season. He will be looking to return to fill fitness and finally kick-start his United career.
The centre back cum left back impressed under Jose Mourinho after initially being out of favour. He suffered a nasty knee injury in the Europa League quarterfinal second leg at home to Anderlecht back in April and is expected to return to training in January 2018.
The attacking midfielder is one player to have found his form under Jose despite their problems while at Chelsea. He played against LA Galaxy in the first pre-season clash a week ago, but suffered an ankle complaint in the 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake some days later. He is expected to return early next month and should start the season fully fit.
The versatile Englishman is a key player of the United squad as he is versatile and will do anything the manager wants of him. He is highly regarded by Jose and will be welcomed when he returns from hamstring surgery sometimes in October.
