Manchester United’s medical staff have determined that Aaron Wan-Bissaka can play through his back injury provided that the area is carefully managed in between games, according to the Telegraph.
The 21-year-old was withdrawn from the England senior squad ahead of the September international break in response to the problem.
It turns out that Wan-Bissaka was already carrying the injury ahead of the international break and that the England medical staff were unwilling to risk him in games against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
According to Matt Law, it is thought that Wan-Bissaka’s injury is something which the defender can play with as long as United’s medical team carefully manage the problem in between games.
The full-back has returned to Carrington this week to be carefully monitored ahead of the club deciding whether he can start against Leicester City at Old Trafford on September 14.
It is quite fitting for United that, after the first month of the season, both Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka have injuries, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with no choice but to use Ashley Young, who we should all just accept will play for this club until at least 2034.
Either way, perhaps there is not much of a story here when it comes to Aaron Wan-Bissaka: strong majority of Premier League footballers play with pain and injuries every week, sustained by ice-baths and injections and all sorts of medical intervention. It is just part of the job. Wan-Bissaka, a ruthlessly hard worker, will manage to push through, you hope.
