Injury Woes for Manchester United: Key Player Casemiro Sidelined
Erik ten Hag’s challenges at Manchester United persist as he faces the absence of a crucial player for the next few weeks.
It has been confirmed by Manchester United that Casemiro will be sidelined for “several weeks” after sustaining a hamstring injury during their Carabao Cup match against Newcastle United. The Brazilian midfielder started the game but was forced to leave at half-time due to the injury.
The club provided an update on Casemiro’s condition, stating, “Casemiro will be out for several weeks due to a hamstring injury suffered during our Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle United on Wednesday. The Brazilian midfielder was withdrawn at half-time due to the issue, and subsequent assessment has revealed a strain that will keep him out for a number of weeks.”
This injury will rule Casemiro out of upcoming matches against Fulham, FC Copenhagen, and Luton Town, extending into the November international break. Furthermore, it may also jeopardize his availability for Manchester United’s visit to St. James’ Park at the start of December when they face Newcastle United on Saturday, December 2 (8 pm kick-off).
Casemiro expressed his desire to play alongside Newcastle’s Bruno Guimaraes last month. Both players represent Brazil, and the former Real Madrid star is eager to team up with Newcastle’s exceptional number 39.
He praised Guimaraes, saying, “Recently, Bruno is a player who has been doing an exceptional job at Newcastle. With every training session and every game, I feel more comfortable playing alongside him. He is a great player who has proven himself in the world’s most challenging competition.”
