Good News For MU, Lukaku Unsatisfied Ankle Injury

Manchester United have received good news. The scan of Romelu Lukaku’s ankle revealed that there were no broken bones or ligament damage.

Lukaku was examined at a hospital in Brussels on Monday with Belgium’s national team after getting into trouble during training with United last weekend.

After being given a painkill injection, the striker underwent a fitness test on Saturday (30/9) morning before being allowed to play against Crystal Palace. He was able to play for 90 minutes and scored in his team’s 4-0 win.

However, after joining his team-mates at Belgium training camp on Monday afternoon local time, he was decided not to attend training sessions under coach Roberto Martinez.

An examination on his ankle revealed no significant damage and the 24-year-old will stay in the Belgian squad ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo on Saturday and Cyprus in Brussels three days later.

Belgian staff believe Lukaku will be fit to face Bosnia and Herzegovina but she will be following an individual training program this week. Belgium are top of Group H and have already qualified for next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

United manager Jose Mourinho will hope that Lukaku will arrive from the international break unscathed with a series of important schedules his team will face in October and November.

Three of the four Premier League matches to be played by Manchester United are against Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea. Their busy schedule starts with a trip to Anfield on 14 October.

If he is fit, this will be the first chance for Lukaku to prove himself capable of scoring for Manchester United in a big game. But after undergoing an excellent start with his new club following his move from Everton, Juan Mata insists that Lukaku has exceeded expectations.

“That is a lot of goals, especially when you come to a new environment. I know he will score many goals but I do not know he will do it very quickly, “said Mata. (Source: ESPN)
