A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
Manchester United defender Paddy McNair has been ruled out for up to three weeks with a hamstring injury.
The news originally broke yesterday, but what fans may not have known was that the 19-year-old had been lined up as a potential replacement for Jonny Evans in the Northern Ireland team for their upcoming matches according to the Belfast Telegraph.
Had McNair featured, it would have been a truly outstanding end to a fairy tale few weeks, but following the injury blow, if Evans does not fully recover from his own setback his country will have to look elsewhere for a suitable replacement..
The Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford this summer along with Louis van Gaal, and the Spanish stopper said, “Frans Hoek has helped me a lot.
“We are working on trying to start moves from the goalkeeper. I think I’m playing the best football of my career. Now I am ready for anything.”
