Man United in deepening injury crisis as defender suffers shoulder blow

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian will be ruled out for ‘several weeks’ with a dislocated shoulder, report BBC Sport.

The Italian defender was injured in the 2-1 loss away to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light earlier today.

The former Torino defender clashed with Wahbi Khazri and was duly replaced by debutant Donald Love.

An Italian international, he moved to Old Trafford in the summer though has struggled with niggling injuries since.

With Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo also out injured, Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal finds his options limited.

Callum Borthwick-Jackson has been promoted to the first-team as a result of the injury crisis the club find themselves entrenched in.

“We don’t have any more full-backs in this club,” stated Van Gaal.

“I have to line up a 13-year-old guy or someone like that.”

United find themselves six points off the pace in the race for a Champions League spot, with just 12 games to go.
