Donny van de Beek forced off in tears as footage of horror injury emerges in win over Bournemouth

Donny van de Beek ended up being forced off in tears as footage of a horror injury he picked up emerges in Man Utd’s win over Bournemouth.

The Red Devils comfortably won 3-0 at Old Trafford, however there are now concerns for van de Beek, who to the surprise of many making a rare start for the side, was forced off through injury at the end of the first half.

After the game, manager Erik ten Hag said of the player’s injury: “We need to wait 24 hours, but it is not looking very good.”

Images since show Van de Beek’s knee being bent as it was pushed backwards, leading to speculation he may have damaged his ACL and could be out for a lengthy period.

Dr. Rajpal Brar, a doctor in physical therapy, claims the midfielder may have injured his medial collateral ligament [MCL], posterior cruciate ligament [PCL], or posteromedial corner [PMC].

At the very worst, Van de Beek may have a problem with his ACL according to Dr. Brar.

When asked by MUTV’s Stewart Gardner about any news on Donny, he replied after the game: “No, that is too quick. We have to wait and then you can make the right diagnosis, so the medical team have to do their work. But it doesn’t look great.

“What has happened to Donny is bad, in the first place, for Donny but also bad news for Manchester United, if it is a bad injury.”

Casemiro, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford got on the scoresheet to hand Manchester United a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth; Erik ten Hag’s team are now level on points with Newcastle, who are 3rd in the Premier League.

“It was like a tennis match,” said Ten Hag in the press conference after the game. “We don’t want to play tennis we want to play football. Keep possession. It costs so much energy for the back line. They take a lot of risks and the front players struggle to get back.

“We are still in a process. In the first half, we control the game but don’t play brilliantly. In the second half, we make a great counter. But we have to be smart. Stay compact. Make them run. You will have chances.

“We feel strong but we only stay strong if we do our jobs and give 100 per cent in every situation. I did not have that feeling. I had a feeling we thought it was easy and the game was gone. But if they make it 2-1 then the game is not gone.

“The belief is growing and it is good to have that feeling but we have to understand that we have to give 100 per cent in every game.”

“Nobody wants to lose 3-0 and we did not deserve to lose 3-0 but if you are going to lose 3-0 that is the way to do it,” said Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil afterwards.

“In the second half, we tried to be slightly more aggressive, press slightly more often, but we get one slightly wrong. We had six big chances and David de Gea [was] making good saves. I thought the majority of United’s chances came after we opened the pitch up.

“The only disappointment is that if we arrive in those positions we have to score the goal. At 2-1 it could have been different. The important thing is that it looked like us today. It has done apart from the Palace game. If we produce that every time we will climb the table.”
