Rabat – Manchester United’s Manager, Louis Van Gaal, expressed his concern following a few physical injuries suffered by his left-footed players.
The British club has been forced to take two footballers, who happen to be left-footed, out of the game due to injuries, namely the English left-back Luke Shaw, who has a broken leg, and the Argentinian international Marcos Rojo, who has a hurt hamstring.
Dutch manager, Van Gaal, said he is facing a problem because of this series of injuries.
“The left-footed players, Shaw and Rojo, are injured, so I have a problem,” he said according to British media.
Shaw and Rojo were left out of Wednesday’s United’s match against Ipswich, in which Van Gaal’s team scored an absolute win (3-0).
Despite their win, United’s manager had to come up with a strategy to retain the “balance” within his team, in order to lessen the absence of Shaw and Rojo on the pitch.
“We have to spare the players. Smalling and Mata have played all the minutes, Blind also,” he said.
“I have changed every player except a left-foot player, so Blind has played all the minutes,” he added.
