Man United star Michael Carrick set for spell on sidelines with possible ankle ligament injury

Posted by

Manchester United could be without veteran midfielder Michael Carrick for some time after sustaining an ankle injury during England’s 2-0 defeat to Spain on Friday night, the Metro reports.

Carrick started the game in Alicante, but was stretchered off during the final minute after he landed awkwardly and twisted his right ankle (via Metro).

The 34-year-old was later pictured wearing a protective boot, and will now have a scan on Saturday in order to determine the severity of the damage, though England boss Roy Hodgson admitted that he is fearing the worst.

“Michael Carrick doesn’t look good,” Hodgson told the BBC.

“He’s got a severely twisted ankle which normally means ligament damage.

“We won’t know that of course until he’s had an X-ray or a scan tomorrow, but it doesn’t look good.”

Hodgson recalled Carrick to the Three Lions squad after the World Cup, but so far injuries have restricted him to just two starts.
