Angel di Maria’s wife has told a fan on Instagram that the Argentinian winger has suffered a small tear to his hamstring.
Di Maria had to be substituted early on against Hull at the weekend after pulling up holding his hamstring and as he went straight down the tunnel, there were concerns his injury could serious as muscular problems can sometimes be serious.
However, his wife Jorgelina Cardoso has revealed to a fan that he has only suffered a small tear to his hamstring when asked on Instagram.
A small tear for Di Maria would see him sidelined for a few weeks rather than a few months which would be great news but it also means he is unlikely to be fit in time for the game against Liverpool in 12 days time.
The good thing for United is that Ander Herrera‘s superb performance from the bench against Hull meant Di Maria’s influence wasn’t sorely missed and Louis van Gaal will be hoping for a similarly impressive performance from the Spaniard again tonight.
