Manchester United’s midfield injury concerns deepened on Saturday when in-form Belgian Marouane Fellaini picked up a knee injury on international duty which will keep him away from the field for a couple of weeks.
The combative Fellaini has been pivotal to United’s unbeaten start to the season but lasted just 29 minutes of a World Cup qualifier against Bosnia in Sarajevo before limping off after landing awkwardly on his knee.
Although the 29-year-old left the Grbavica Stadium without the use of crutches following Belgium’s 4-3 win, coach Roberto Martinez offered a sombre assessment of the player’s condition.
“We are all worried about Fellaini,” Martinez told reporters. “We fear that there’s ligament damage.”
The Belgian FA said on Sunday Fellaini “will be out for a couple of weeks with a left knee injury” after the player underwent an MRI scan.
The injury comes a week before United’s clash with Liverpool on Oct. 14.
