Manchester United have launched an investigation into the current injury crisis being suffered by Erik ten Hag’s squad.
It is a crisis that has seen multiple players such as Lisandro Martínez and Luke Shaw ruled out for multiple months, and the team’s formed has suffered as a result of this.
According to the Daily Mail, the club have now launched an investigation to see if they can spot any patterns with the injuries occurring in a bid to stop the crisis from evolving further.
If current medical officials are able to find a pattern, it is reported that they will then attempt to find a way to improve injury prevention in the future.
Both Manchester United and Manchester City played the most fixtures across all competitions out of all top-flight English clubs, and the medical department have noticed that both clubs seem to be suffering from the same issues.
One theory is that United are suffering residual effects from some players having played so many fixtures last campaign, with all the domestic games combined with the 2022 World Cup ties. The club also played a total of eight pre-season fixtures over the summer.
United recently poached Arsenal’s head of medical, Gary O’Driscoll, to become the club’s new head of sports medicine, and he will no doubt have had an input into the launch of this investigation.
