Will Keane suffered a cruel groin injury only ten minutes after coming on for Manchester United against Shrewsbury tonight.
The 23-year-old striker replaced Anthony Martial in the second half but immediately pulled up holding his groin after crashing a shot against the post.
Keane may well not have warmed up properly or the slick pitch could have caused a problem but regardless of how it happened, it’s such bad luck for a player who has spent the last two years working his way back to fitness.
Either way, seeing Keane in pain on the floor is a sight which brings back memories for me as a fan so I hate to think how Keane is feeling.
Hopefully his withdrawal was only a precaution and he is OK for the upcoming games against FC Midtjylland and Arsenal.
