New Manchester United signing Sofyan Amrabat pulls out of Morocco squad ahead of international fixtures. It’s precautionary, not a major injury for Amrabat.
Manchester United as a club is going through a very tough time. On the pitch, performances are not going in their way. Also, off the pitch, matters are getting from bad to worse. The Antony matter is ruining the image of the club as well as Jadon Sancho and Erik ten Hag spat. The next person to enter the list of concerns for Man Utd is Sofyan Amrabat.
After waiting for months, United finally signed the Moroccan international from Fiorentina. His signing couldn’t take place within a timeframe and thus, he was out of that Arsenal game. However, since he was left out of the Arsenal game, fans started speculating about an injury. Rasmus Hojlund joined United this summer with an injury and he had to wait a couple of weeks before making his debut against Arsenal. Now, Sofyan Amrabat is going in the same direction.
Sofyan Amrabat is the latest on the Manchester United injury list
The injury list at Manchester United is getting bigger and bigger. The next player to make this list is Sofyan Amrabat. He was training with the Moroccan international side. However, their coach, Walid Regragui, suddenly replaced Sofyan Amrabat stating injury concerns for the player.

However, United fans can have a sigh of relief as many Moroccan outlets are reporting that the injury to Sofyan Amrabat is not that concerning and it was a precautionary step that the manager took so that the player could get fit to play for Manchester United which is Sofyan’s dream.

Therefore, he doesn’t have a major issue that would keep him out for a while. Also, Man Utd fans will be hoping to see Sofyan Amrabat in action because they lost the midfield battle in all the games they played so far this season. Do you think Sofyan Amrabat will start against Brighton?
