Sabitzer to miss rest of the season

Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has suffered a meniscal injury which will, unfortunately, rule him out for the remainder of the season.

The Austria international, who joined on loan from Bayern Munich in January, missed the 2-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, with a knee complaint, after coming off the bench in the previous game at West Ham United.

Marcel has played an important role in the second half of United’s 2022/23 campaign, racking up 18 appearances and scoring three times, a cheeky backheel against Fulham in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final and a double in the Europa League last-eight first leg clash with Sevilla.

The 29-year-old has also secured a Carabao Cup winner’s medal, after featuring in February’s triumph over Newcastle United, and converted one of the penalties during the shootout success against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semi-final.

Christian Eriksen, who was sidelined when Sabitzer arrived, is back playing regularly again, while Raphael Varane made a successful return at the weekend, following his recent lay-off. Alejandro Garnacho scored the clincher late on against Wolves, in his first outing since overcoming an ankle injury.
