Will Keane is ‘absolutely gutted’ by his latest injury setback and now has to set his focus on returning to fitness for Manchester United.
The 23-year-old striker came off the bench against Shrewsbury Town but had to be taken off after just ten minutes when he pulled his groin after taking a shot.
Having spent the last two years recovering fully from a horrible cruciate ligament injury, it’s terrible to see Keane back on the sidelines because it really is rotten luck but he’s trying to stay positive.
Prior to his injury, Keane was prolific in front of goal for our U21s and he’d been doing the same thing again this year with our U21s, which is why Louis van Gaal called him up to the first-team squad to replace Wayne Rooney.
For him to have another opportunity taken away because of injury is cruel but all Keane can do now is focus on his recovery once again and try not to let it mentally affect him too much, which must be hard at this stage after so many injuries.
Age is still on Keane’s side but he’s got to make sure that when he returns to fitness this time that he can genuinely put his injury woes behind him as he won’t get that many more opportunities at United.
