The captain of Manchester United and of the English national football team, Wayne Rooney has picked up a knee ligament injury which will be keeping the Englishman out of action for the upcoming 2 months which is hugely devastating news for Manchester United.
Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial currently are the top goal-scorers of Manchester United in this season with each of them scoring 7 goals in the Premier League so far.
Louis van Gaal is now not able to utilize one of the players who has been performing better in this season. This injury simply could not have arrived at a worse time for the Dutch coach Louis van Gaal as he is trying to save his job and avoid getting sacked. There already are rumors being spread around claiming that Jose Mourinho is already lined up as a possible coach that can replace Louis van Gaal if he is not able to push Manchester United into a top 4 finish in this campaign.
If Wayne Rooney does indeed need 2 months to recover from his knee ligament injury, this will be leaving the Englishman out of action for a number of important games of Manchester United including their upcoming Premier League match which is scheduled to take place at Old Trafford as Manchester United receive Arsenal in their own home soil on February 28.
“We have 13 players injured and Wayne is one of them. He has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. He scores a lot of goals so he is very important for us. We know that but we have to cope with that.” Manchester United’s Louis van Gaal said as he confirmed that Wayne Rooney is indeed injured as well as many of his other players.
