On-loan Manchester United midfielder Marcel Sabitzer picks up season-ending injury

Marcel Sabitzer, who is on loan at Manchester United from Bayern Munich, has been ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up an injury, according to the club’s official website. Considering he is to return to Bayern this summer, he could have played his last game in a Man United shirt.

The Austria international came off the bench in our 1-0 loss to West Ham United. However, against Wolverhampton Wanderers, the 29-year-old was unavailable due to a problem with his knee as we got a 2-0 victory.

The midfielder made a temporary move to the Old Trafford side in the previous transfer window on deadline day. Unfortunately, after putting in some decent displays, he will not feature in our last three Premier League matches and the FA Cup final.

United signed Sabitzer to add cover in the middle of the park. Donny van de Beek was sidelined for the remainder of the campaign in January. Christian Eriksen had also picked a lengthy knock back then.

The Austrian’s arrival was pivotal in adding depth to the Red Devils’ squad. Also, with Casemiro picking up a couple of red card suspensions in recent months, the 29-year-old’s addition has been even more important.

The Bayern loanee has come in handy for Erik ten Hag. This season, the midfielder made 18 appearances in all competitions for the Old Trafford side, scoring three goals and providing one assist.

Sabitzer made a name for himself at RB Leipzig. The Austrian established himself in the Bundesliga with Die Roten Bullen before the Allianz Arena side came calling for his signature.

However, at Bayern, the 29-year-old struggled to cement his place in the starting lineup. He was mostly the backup option for Julian Nagelsmann at the Bavarians.
