Hargreaves Injury Update – Not Good News…
I am still awaiting the day when an injury update on Owen Hargreaves can be classified as ‘good news’. As it is, the Canadian born midfielder is once again on the all to familiar treatment table at United. This time it is his shoulder. Apparently, he damaged his shoulder in training with United and will now be out for another month. He felt his shoulder pop out of its socket as he challenged for a header. The initial fears are that he has damaged ligaments and could be out for at least four weeks.
He has already missed the majority of the season with his persistent knee injuries and hamstring injury and received several operations to cure the continuous trouble but now more misery is heaped onto the poor guy. I suppose the good news from this is that it isn’t a recurrence of the knee injury or the hamstring injury he picked up earlier this season.
Hargreaves started against Wolves to the surprise of many back in November. It was all looking great until the sixth minute when he pulled up with a hamstring injury and was once again forced down the tunnel to receive treatment and the inevitable bad news.
At 30 years of age and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, it would be a leap of faith for Sir Alex to keep him at United for another year considering his injuries. He would certainly be worth the risk if he were to overcome his injuries, but much like Michael Owen, whose contract also expires come the end of the season, it would be a big risk.
Tell me what you think!
