“We played 3 matches in 6 days.”
When the injured came out, Manchester United (hereafter Man United) manager Eric ten Haag shook his head.
Manchester United won 2-0 in a confrontation with Everton in the 30th round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 8th at 8:30 pm (Korean time).
With this, Manchester United climbed to 3rd place in the league with 56 points (17 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses). On the other hand, Everton stayed in 17th place (27 points).
Man Utd scored the first goal. In the 36th minute of the first half, Sancho, who was handed the ball that Rashford had saved, passed a pass to McTominay, who penetrated deep into the box. McTominay fired the shot and scored.
In the second half, Manchester United scored an extra goal. In the 26th minute of the second half, the Everton defense mistakenly spilled the ball that was handed over at once. The ball went to Rashford. Rashford passed the ball directly to Martial, who was empty in the center, and Martial shook the net without a mistake. 스포츠토토
The match ended with a two-goal victory for Manchester United.
But Man United couldn’t help but laugh. This is because striker Rashford, who recorded one assist that day, was substituted out due to an injury in the 35th minute of the second half. He complained of discomfort in the groin due to an uneasy landing while trying to catch an aerial ball. In the end, Rashford couldn’t finish the game to the end.
After the game, manager Ten Haag expressed his feelings while talking about Rashford’s physical condition.
According to the British media ‘Evening Standard’, coach Ten Haag said, “We have to wait. Rashford’s condition doesn’t look good. It seems like it’s because of the schedule. It’s close to impossible to play 3 games in 6 days.” “You have to protect them. Everyone wants to see the best players on the pitch and see a great game like today, but to do that you need the best players.”
Manchester United have been on a tight schedule lately. After the league match against Newcastle on the 3rd, Brentford on the 6th, and Everton on the same day, we played 3 matches in 6 days.
