Baran’s up to 6-week absence ‘confirmed’…Man Utd, Maguire, etc. endure with ‘gum’
- on Apr 23, 2023
An emergency was caught in the Manchester United defense.
Reporter Simon Murlock of the UK’s ‘Daily Mirror’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “Rafael Varane could be out for up to six weeks with an injury.”
On the 14th, Baran played only 45 minutes in the first half of the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Europa League (UEL) against Seville (Spain). Suspicious of an injury, he was replaced at the start of the second half. The specific extent of the injury was not revealed.
He was subsequently ruled out for up to six weeks with an ankle injury. It is news like a thunderbolt from the blue sky for Manchester United. Baran, who came over from Real Madrid (Spain) in 2021, has established himself as the main player. However, he has been plagued by frequent injuries. He was injured once again and was ruled out at the end of the season. It is already the 8th injury since coming to Manchester United.
To make matters worse, Lisandro Martinez is also injured. He suffered a metatarsal fracture in his foot in a match against Sevilla with Baran. Season out confirmed. Manchester United should have Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw as their central defensive line for the remainder of the season.
Maguire is at the center of criticism. He joined Manchester United from Leicester City in 2019. At the time, the transfer fee alone was 80 million pounds (approximately 117 billion won). However, criticism continued due to frequent mistakes. Eventually, from this season, he was pushed back from the main team. He made just 13 appearances (6 as a substitute) in the league.
Same with Lindelof. I couldn’t seize the right opportunity because I was pushed by Baran and Martinez. 12 league appearances (substitution 6) are all.
Shaw is not a professional central defender. His primary position is left fullback. Coincidentally, Manchester United are undefeated this season (5 wins, 1 draw) in matches where Shaw has played as a central defender. However, the fact that he is not in the main position is still a factor of concern.
Meanwhile,토토사이트 Manchester United will play the 2022-23 English FA Cup semi-final against Brighton Hove Albion at Wembley Stadium in London, England on the 24th. Maguire is scheduled to form a central defense with Shaw and Lindelof, as he has been sidelined due to accumulated warnings.
