Manchester United star David de Gea picked up a knee injury during the warm-up before their clash against FC Midtjylland on Thursday, according to reports from the Mirror.
With less than 15 minutes until the kick-off, the Red Devils announced that number one goalkeeper De Gea will be replaced by Sergio Romero, who was unable to help his side as United lost 2-1 in Denmark.
Louis van Gaal’s men took the lead through Memphis Depay in the 37th minute, but right before half-time were pegged back 1-1 with a goal from Pione Sisto.
And Midtjylland put the Red Devils under constant pressure in the second period, and finally got their reward when Paul Onuachu’s daisy-cutter went pass Romero into the bottom corner of the net 13 minutes from full time.
After the match, Van Gaal revealed that De Gea is set to undergo scans to evaluate the extent of his injury, which is a huge blow to United after news that Wayne Rooney will be sidelined for six weeks.
He said: “David De Gea has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. We will investigate that with a scan.”
