Manchester United confirm injury to goalkeeper Joel Pereira

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United confirmed Joel Pereira suffered an injury which has led to Dean Henderson being recalled from his loan spell at Grimsby Town.

Pereira only made his senior Man United debut the other week when Jose Mourinho brought him off the bench against Wigan Athletic, so this is a real blow to the young Portuguese lad.

On the flip side, it represents an opportunity for Henderson who is now back at the club having only just re-joined Grimsby Town on loan.

At this moment in time there is no clarity on how long Pereira will be out for but the initial reports suggest it could well be a knee ligament issue for Pereira which would of course be a devastating bit of news for him.

Mourinho is expected to discuss the injury to Pereira in his press conference where we might get some more clarity on the situation. We’ll bring you updates and quotes from Mourinho when they come out.
