Manchester United (Man United), an English professional soccer team that is in a hurry to go, lost two of its main center backs to injuries at once.
Manchester United announced on its homepage on the 15th (Korean time) that Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, who have been active this season, have left the lineup due to injuries.
Manchester United said: “Martinez suffered a broken metatarsal bone in his foot and the rest of the season is uncertain. However, he will be able to fully recover in time for the start of next season. We expect Varane to miss several weeks.”
Both players were injured in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League (UEL) against Sevilla (Spain) during the week.
Martinez was carried off on a stretcher in the 41st minute with United leading 2-1, complaining of sore feet.
Afterwards, Manchester United played the game with one player missing, and eventually had to be satisfied with a 2-2 draw with Harry Maguire’s own goal in the 47th minute of the second half.
Baran was injured in the first half and was substituted at halftime.
It is a big bad news for Manchester United that Martinez and Baran, who played together in most of the Premier League (EPL) games this season and were in charge of the back, broke away from the front line at the same time.스포츠토토
Manchester United, 4th in the EPL (56 points), is competing fiercely with Tottenham (53 points) for a ticket to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season, so their vacancy seems bigger.
Maguire and Victor Lindelof are expected to take over the central defense in place of Martinez and Baran.
