Manchester United still without Angel di Maria

Manchester United will be without Argentine starlet Angel Di Maria for longer than they hoped, revealed manager Louis Van Gaal.

The superstar has been injured for the previous three weeks with a hamstring tear and was expected to be carrying on with his return to the first team against Newcastle having just returned in the draw against Aston Villa.


However, during training the former Real Madrid man injured his pelvis on Christmas Eve. Louis Van Gaal must have been on the naughty list as Angel Di Maria joined the injury list alongside Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo.

Van Gaal would have been hoping the record signing would be available for the visit to White Hart Lane against Tottenham but he sees no realistic return date. "It is not a muscle injury," he said. "It is more the pelvis does not have the right relationship with the leg. We will have to wait and see for the analysis." 


Di Maria will be frustrated that this new injury is disrupting him settling into his new surroundings at Old Trafford as he comes to terms with the English food, English language and English game.

Van Gaal will once again be concerned that an injury has occurred on the training ground with several Manchester United players picking up injuries at Carrington. The clipboard master will surely be looking into this matter and will be finding the cure to the problem very quickly.

With Manchester United on an unbeaten run of eight games things seem to be turning around after a difficult start for the new Manchester United boss but with players dropping like flies it could be detrimental later in the season as Manchester United seem to be mounting a title charge on neighbours Manchester City and domestic rivals Chelsea.
