Manchester United’s injury problems are seemingly not just with Louis van Gaal‘s first-team as Nani has suffered an injury to his right thigh.
On loan at Sporting Lisbon, Nani had to have his leg strapped and is now a doubt for their upcoming game against Chelsea which would be a real blow for Sporting given how important he has been to their season so far.
Nani’s performances back at Sporting have seen him become a front runner in the club’s Player of the Year awards and he was also voted by fans as the best player in the Portuguese league in a poll last month.
At this stage, it isn’t known how severe Nani’s injury is but he will miss their game against Chelsea.
Injury problems have marred United at all levels this season. Van Gaal has had to deal with over 40 separate injury cases with the first-team, the U21s have also had plenty of problems and players out on loan have also run into issues as well.
