A number of Manchester United stars spent the first half of the Premier League campaign on the treatment table, but based on Ashley Young’s latest Twitter post, the club’s injury crisis may finally be over.
Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Rafael, Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick and Daley Blind, were just some of the many defensive injuries Louis van Gaal had to deal with ever since the season kicked off.
Some players returned only to pick up completely different knock, while others were suddenly out, causing the club to turn to the academy pairing of Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair.
However, Young posted that he was all alone in the physio room, something which United haven’t had so far, with Van Gaal even being forced to drop star striker Radamel Falcao for not having enough space to select everyone he wanted for the Southampton game.
Quite a difference the new year makes!
Bit lonely in the physio room! Where’s everyone gone?
