Manchester United defender Raphael Varane got injured while on international duty with France as he lasted just 43 minutes in Sunday’s Nations League final between France and Spain.
While running towards goal near the end of the first half, the 28-year-old immediately seemed to have injured himself as he gestured towards France’s medical staff that he needed to be subbed off.
Forunately, Didier Deschamps’ men came from behind to win the game 2-1 at the San Siro.
Manchester United have now confirmed that Varane will be out of action for ‘a few weeks’ after the defender sustained a groin injury while on international duty with France.
“Raphael Varane sustained a groin muscle injury in the UEFA Nations League final and has commenced rehabilitation at the club,” a statement on Manchester United’s website said on Tuesday afternoon.
“He will be out for a few weeks.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will most likely call on Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly to come in for the injured duo of Varane and Harry Maguire.
