Man Utd defender Raphael Varane forced off with a foot injury while on international duty with France

Manchester United defender Raphaël Varane may have sustained another injury after being forced to withdraw from a match in France on Friday.

Varane was named in the starting XI for the friendly against Ivory Coast but was forced off on the hour mark, replaced by Arsenal loanee William Saliba.

Deschamps revealed at the post-match conference that the commanding center-back had suffered a ‘small problem with his foot.

The extent of the 28-year-injury is unknown, but the Red Devils will be crossing their fingers that he recovers fully in time for their Premier League match against Leicester City on April 2nd.

Ralf Rangnick, the interim manager, recently stated that Varane has a history of injuries.

Speaking to reporters earlier this year (as quoted by MEN), the German said: “I am happy that he has been continuously training, having had no injuries.

“This was probably his biggest issue in the first weeks and months that he has always had to deal with some injuries. After having trained or played two or three games he was out for another six weeks.”
