Huge Relief for Man Utd as Belgium FA provide ‘positive update’ on Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will breathe a sigh of relief after the Belgium Football Association confirmed that Romelu Lukaku has not sustained any major injury. The 24-year-old striker sat out Belgium training on Monday amid claims that he had suffered a serious ankle damage.

An MRI scan was performed on Lukaku’s ankle to know the extent of the problem, and the Belgium Football Association have now revealed that the marksman has not suffered a fracture or structural damage.

Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed,” the Belgian FA said via the team’s official Twitter account. “The next days he will follow an individual training program. It is however too early to state that he won’t be match fit for the Bosnia and/or Cyprus game.”

Paul Pogba is already on the long-term injury list with a hamstring injury sustained last month, but Mourinho has recently stressed that United don’t think about players on the sidelines.

The likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have been in the goals this term, but the latest update on Lukaku would certainly please the fans following his blistering start to his Old Trafford career.

Lukaku has amassed 11 goals in just 10 outings for Manchester United since his move from Everton for an initial £75m in July.
