LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Bruno Fernandes was seen on crutches and a protective boot, dealing another injury blow to Manchester United.
The 28-year-old’s wife, Ana Pinho, posted a photo of her husband with a protective boot and the words “recharging” beside the image.
Meanwhile, during the match between the Red Devils and Brighton for the FA Cup semifinal, the Portuguese playmaker received an unfortunate injury.
Erik ten Hag’s team prevailed in that match, maintaining composure in a penalty shootout to set up a historic derby match with arch-rivals Manchester City on June 3. However, the victory may have come at a price.
Despite United’s considerations to replace Fernandes at the time of the incident and at halftime of their match against the Seagulls, Fernandes sustained an ankle injury during another game at Wembley Stadium. He eventually played 101 minutes.
Eventually, Fernandes was replaced by Wout Weghorst in overtime and now seems destined for an unavoidable stint on the sidelines.
Raphael Varane is now dealing with a knock, while United previously lost Lisandro Martinez to a season-ending injury.
On Thursday, United will return to Premier League play when they go to Tottenham, raising concerns that Fernandes will have to miss the trip to north London.
