Marcel Sabitzer will miss the rest of the season for Man Utd

Manchester United will be without Marcel Sabitzer for the rest of the season following his meniscal injury.

The knee problem kept him out of the 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

The 29-year-old will likely return to his parent club Bayern Munich and United will decide whether to sign him permanently.

Sabitzer joined Man Utd on a season-long loan in January 2023 and has made 18 appearances.

He has been instrumental for the squad this second half of the season, bagging three goals for the Red Devils.

Sabotzer helped the Red Devils defeat Newcastle United in the League Cup final and netted a beautiful backheel against Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final.

He also scored a double in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg clash with Sevilla.

Sabitzer will miss the Premier League games against Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham. He has also been ruled out of the FA Cup final against Manchester City on June 3.

He initially arrived from Germany to back up Christian Eriksen, but the Dane is fit and now playing regularly.

United manager Erik ten Hag will try to manage him until the end of the campaign with only a few games remaining.

However, United have some happy news to report after Raphael Varane returned from his injury lay-off to play against Wolves.

Youngster Alejandro Garnacho also returned from his two-month lay-off to secure United’s victory over Wolves with a goal in the dying moments.

The 18-year-old has come up with some clutch moments for the club, but his next challenge is to nail down a starting spot in the first team.
