“First diagnosis of Romelu Lukaku’s ankle injury: not one that would keep him out for weeks.” “A scan still has to confirm it.”This is good news, because United has the FA Cup finals fixture on 19th May, and their best striker being fit just in time to play it would be very important. Quoted in Daily Mail,Jose Mourinho speaking on the injury after the game said:
“I don’t think it’s something or I hope it’s not, that is this moment keeps him immediately out of a game that is in three weeks’ time. But I don’t know.” “He wants to play all the time. He I never tired and, when he has small things, he doesn’t care. He still wants to help. So, for him to say immediately, to change him, it is because he couldn’t play.”It isn’t a sounding yes from the boss about his possibility of return, but he doesn’t seem too concerned which I assume surely is a good sign.
United have proved it time and again, that they can win matches even without Lukaku. With Lukaku injured, Rashford needs to step up and fulfill his duties and has quite often done that. United have three more league matches, and they have already secured a Champions League spot so his absence might not be that important in this present juncture given that United need just four points in three matches to stay on the second spot.
Mourinho on Lukaku’s injury: "I don't know if he is going to be out (of the FA Cup Final) or if he's not okay. He wants to play all the time. He is never tired and, when he has small things he doesn't care. He still wants to go.“ #mufc [mu] pic.twitter.com/sibPczF15C— utdhq (@utdhq) April 29, 2018
