Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Daley Blind knee injury

Daley Blind Ajax VLQ

Fans of Manchester United are not pleased with the injury to their £13.8 million summer signing.

Manchester United's injury list has taken another hit this international break, with three players picking up injuries whilst with their national teams.

Michael Carrick pulled out of the England squad last week. David De Gea has dislocated his finger playing for Spain. And tonight it got worse, as Daley Blind suffered a knee injury playing for The Netherlands.

Luckily it is reported that it is not his anterior cruciate ligament, but his medial, meaning it is not as severe as some of the worse knee injuries possible.

After the game Dutch coach Guus Hiddink made it clear that the injury was quite serious:

"I'm rather negative. I think it's a medial ligament that is twisted. It might be a rupture."

For United fans that will be a massive blow. They have suffered with serious injury problems all season but the loss of Blind would be bad news.

The £13.8 million summer signing from Ajax has been in great form recently playing a vital role in the holding midfield area for the club.

Without him the team will be further weakened defensively and Manchester United will need to consider their alternatives, especially with Carrick and Phil Jones' own injury problems.

Here is some of the Twitter reaction to his injury problem...
