It was more bad injury news for Manchester United fans on Saturday afternoon as British transfer record holder Angel Di Maria was replaced in the first half against Hull City with an apparent hamstring injury.

As reported by The Guardian, the Argentinian international becomes the 41st United player to have picked up an injury problem this season as the bad luck continues for new boss Louis van Gaal.

The £60m attacker was withdrawn with just 13 minutes on the clock against the Tigers, as van Gaal opted to remove him early to avoid risking making it worse. Ander Herrera, another returning from injury, was summoned from the bench to replace him.

It appeared that Di Maria suffered the hamstring pull when sprinting through the middle of the centre-circle early in the match.

It doesn’t seem to be a tear as Di Maria did not sharply pull up and stop moving, instead walking towards the sideline for treatment before indicating that he didn’t think he could continue.

Manchester United will be hoping it’s just a minor muscle injury for the Argentina international and nothing more serious.
