Manchester United have had a disappointing start to the season with injuries to key players and poor performances, and now the club’s latest midfielder has gone down with an injury, prompting fans to call for an end to the season.
“United fans have called for an end to the season after Sofiane Amrabat was ruled out of the Moroccan national team through injury,” the Sun reported on Aug. 8.
Prior to the start of the season, the Red Devils were widely expected to improve on last season’s third-place league finish and EFL Cup victory. The Red Devils went straight to work in the summer transfer window, bringing in the likes of Mason Mount, Andre Onana, Rasmus Højlund, and Sergio Reguilon to bolster the squad and prepare for a title run.온라인카지노
However, the Red Devils disappointed right from the start of the season. They won their opening game against Wolverhampton, but were heavily outplayed by the Toffees, and in their second round match against Tottenham, they were outplayed for most of the game, except for a brief spell of dominance early in the first half, and lost 0-2.
They followed that up with a 3-2 win at Nottingham, but conceding the first two goals of the game exposed their shaky form, which was followed by a 1-3 loss at Arsenal in the fourth round of the league.
In addition to the poor form, a series of injuries further unsettled fans. While Hooper returned from injury to make his debut against the Gunners, the team is unlikely to be at full strength immediately after the international break, with Mount, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Tyrrell Malacia all out injured.
The news that Amrabat, United’s latest transfer window signing, has been ruled out for the foreseeable future with an injury has further added to the worries of United fans.
The Sun reports, “United recently pulled Amrabat from the Moroccan national team due to injury. Amrabat was reportedly suffering from a back problem after completing his move to United on transfer deadline day. However, United have allowed him to join the Morocco squad for their Nations Cup qualifiers.”
“Amrabat is now out of the Moroccan squad and the fans are even more fed up with this,” he added, explaining that United fans were disappointed to hear that Amrabat will be out for the foreseeable future.
According to the report, United fans took to social media to express their frustration with the news of Amrabat’s injury, saying, “This makes no sense,” “This pain never ends,” “Please end the season,” “Wake me up when the season starts again,” and “It’s not going to be relegation, is it?”
“It is unclear whether Amrabat will return to the club straight away for rehabilitation,” the outlet said. Mourinho is desperate for him to be fit for the trip to Brighton after the A-match period, and even more so for the Champions League group stage against Bayern Munich,” and hopes to have him back in time for the tight schedule after the A-match period.
In addition to Amrabat, the club has been in turmoil recently with Jadon Sancho’s training attitude controversy and the ongoing police investigation into Anthony’s domestic violence allegations.
Sancho has been heavily criticized for his attitude in training and has been at loggerheads with manager Van Gaal. Anthony is also under investigation for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin, a situation that has been compounded by the fact that two more women have come forward with accusations against him since the club’s official statement. It’s unclear if either player will be able to play immediately.
If neither Anthony nor Sancho are fit enough to play, that would mean three more players – Anthony, Sancho, and Amrabat – on top of the existing injuries, which would significantly disrupt United’s schedule.
After a very shaky start to the season, there will be a lot of interest from United fans to see if the club can overcome the injuries and inconsistency to bounce back.
