Goodnews – Return Date Announced: Kobbie Mainoo drops Manchester United injury return date

Young Kobbie Mainoo’s promising pre-season journey with Manchester United was cut short by an unfortunate ankle injury he sustained during a match against Real Madrid. The injury occurred during the team’s pre-season tour in the United States, where Mainoo had showcased his talents in the first three pre-season games, ultimately earning himself a spot in the midfield lineup against the formidable Real Madrid at the NRG Stadium in Texas.

However, his moment on the pitch was short-lived, lasting only a little over five minutes before he had to be substituted for Christian Eriksen due to the injury. Unfortunately, Manchester United was already trailing 1-0 following an early goal by Jude Bellingham.

Following the game, the 18-year-old took to Instagram to update his fans, expressing his determination with the message: “I’ll be back stronger and in no time. Thanks for your messages of support.”

Mainoo had recently hinted at an imminent comeback when he responded to a question from club captain Bruno Fernandes on social media, suggesting that his return wasn’t too far off. He has now tantalizingly teased further progress by sharing a picture of himself in a Manchester United kit on social media, accompanied by a clock emoji, implying that his return may be just around the corner.

When asked about Mainoo’s recovery progress before United’s trip to Tottenham in August, their manager, Erik ten Hag, stated, “He’s not available at this moment, but I believe he’ll be back in about two months, just in time for the winter fixtures. He’ll certainly have his chance to shine.”

Manchester United secured the loan signing of midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on the deadline day, providing valuable cover as Mainoo, and Mason Mount found themselves sidelined due to injuries.
