Louis Van Gaal , Manchester United Manager confirms that defender Luke Shaw will only be out for a “few weeks” due to sustained ankle ligament injury. “There are no serious complications” He added.
Some reports suggested the 19-year-old would be out for as long as six weeks with the injury picked up in Saturday’s 2-1 Premier League win at Arsenal.
He added: “Last time I said something about injuries it was not interpreted so well. Van Gaal was referring to the confusion surrounding the injury to midfielder Daley Blind, who last week was thought to be out for six months with a knee injury after a tweet by the club’s official account.
The Dutchman. who later clarified that his compatriot would spend six to eight weeks on the sidelines, said on Friday: “I gave Blind a holiday and he came back on Monday.
“He has to exercise and practice every day as an injured player has to train more than the fit players.”
The United boss also confirmed that striker Radamel Falcao, who has not played since 20 October, and defender Marcus Rojo, who has missed four weeks, could feature in Saturday’s Premier League game against Hull City at Old Trafford.
