Coach Erik Ten Hag has revealed new information regarding the condition of Antony Santos, Manchester United’s attacking winger.
Santos sustained an injury during Thursday’s match against Chelsea, which led to his withdrawal from the game in the first half.
The injury occurred as a result of a strong tackle by Chelsea’s center-back, Trevoh Chalobah, in the match that secured Manchester United’s entry into the Champions League with a 4-1 victory over Chelsea.
Antony’s injury appears to be more serious than initially reported, with earlier sources suggesting that he could be sidelined for two months.
Prior to his team’s 2-1 comeback win over Fulham, the 23-year-old Brazilian was photographed jumping on a pole, which raised concerns about the severity of his injury.
However, before the match, Coach Ten Hag provided an update, stating that Antony’s injury is not as severe as previously thought, and there is a good chance he will be fit for the upcoming Manchester Derby FA Cup Final.
Despite his worrying exit from the previous game, the initial evaluation suggests that he could recover in time for the final.
