Just before Manchester United played FC Midtjylland in their Europa League opener, star goalkeeper David de Gea injured his leg in warmups and had to miss the match. His backup, Sergio Romero, could not handle the duties and surrendered two goals in a 2-1 loss that put the entire club on notice. However, the Red Devils may have escaped disaster upon getting a closer look at De Gea’s injuries.
According to the Daily Mail, tests revealed that David de Gea did not suffer any significant damage to his knee, but is still in doubt for the club’s FA Cup match against Shrewsbury on Monday night. However, he may be available for the second leg of the Europa League on Thursday at Old Trafford.
The injury to De Gea was yet another pile-on to the club’s incredible injury list – which consists of a starting XI that could very well exceed the one they have active. Wayne Rooney was injured just prior to the team’s flight to the Danish side.
