Manchester United’s Will Keane suffers suspected knee ligament damage

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United striker Will Keane suffered suspected medial ligament damage and had his knee put in a brace as a precaution.

The 22-year-old striker, who is on loan at Sheffield Wednesday, was substituted at half-time in their 0-0 draw with Brighton this afternoon and there are now fears his injury woes have come back once again.

Back in 2012 when he was on the verge of joining Man United’s firs-team, Keane suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury away on international duty with England.

He subsequently missed a full season of football but worked his way back to fitness and had recently been showing some good goal scoring form with Man United’s U21s, so it would be a cruel blow for Keane to have another career threatening injury.

At this stage there has been no official confirmation from Sheffield Wednesday but the fact Keane had his knee put in a brace is an ominous sign. Man United fans are hoping it was merely a precaution.
