Injury update on Gabby George

Tuesday 17 October 2023 09:20

Manchester United boss Marc Skinner has confirmed that Gabby George has suffered an ACL injury.

The defender, who joined Manchester United on deadline day, was forced off in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Sunday. 

Speaking to MUTV on Tuesday morning, ahead of the PSG match, Skinner said: "It's an ACL. There are different levels of ACLs. 

"She goes in today for an operation.

Gabby George will be unavailable after sustaining an ACL injury.

"I would always put 12 months on this sort of injury. She could come back sooner, but I would rather work back.

"That's the sensible way to prepare, working backwards. 

"We will support her and give her the best treatment and we will make sure that she comes back from that stronger and even better than she was before.

"I asked Gabby if there was anything we could do and she said 'Can you win in Paris?' and we will certainly try our best."

Skinner and the Reds will travel to Paris, France, on Tuesday afternoon ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League match. 

The second leg will be shown live on MUTV in the UK and Ireland.
