Sofyan Amrabat is exactly the type of player that Manchester United have been crying out for in the early weeks of the new season.
The Moroccan was the last player registered before the summer transfer window closed, meaning that he wasn’t registered in time to participate in the English Premier League clash with Arsenal.
After joining up with the Morocco national team for their upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Liberia and Burkina Faso, news trickled through that Amrabat was released from the squad due to injury.
This news was confirmed by Manchester United Football Club on Friday night and had gotten United fans worried that Amrabat was due to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines – therefore delaying his debut for the club.
Morocco head coach Walid Regragui was asked by the media about Amrabat’s withdrawal and provided some context to the injury.
“Sofyan Amrabat felt something,” Regragui said.
“We let him go as a precaution because he has just started his new adventure with Manchester United.”
From his comments, it seems that United fans don’t have too much to worry about it.
It looks as if it was more of a case that it’s something relatively minor, but the Morocco staff decided not to risk him and do something that could damage the start of his spell at United.
With that news, United fans will be hoping that the staff at Carrington can nurse Amrabat back to full fitness in time for the side’s next match against Brighton at Old Trafford next Saturday.
