Injury boost for Man Utd as keepers injury is judged as not serious

Manchester United fans can breathe a sigh of relief after the Argentine FA that Sergio Romero’s injury is not too serious.

The United number 2 goalkeeper started in goal during Argentina’s 6-1 defeat to Spain on Tuesday night, but had to be replaced by Chelsea’s Willy Caballero after just 22 minutes clutching his knee.

However despite some fans worrying that the injury could be serious, the Argentine FA have allayed those fears, and claimed that the injury was not serious.

They tweeted:

“Sergio Romero suffered a trauma in his right knee. The studies performed ruled out serious bone and ligament injuries.”

Whether Romero will be fit to be back on the bench for Man Utd’s fixture against Swansea on Saturday is however yet to be seen.

The international friendly against Spain in Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium saw Romero face up directly against Manchester United number 1 David de Gea who bagged a sensational 70-yard assist to set up former Liverpool striker Iago Aspas for Spain’s fifth goal.
