Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says Marouane Fellaini will likely be ruled out “for weeks” with the knee injury the midfielder suffered during Wednesday’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Belgium international lasted just seven minutes at Wembley and will miss Huddersfield’s visit to Old Trafford on Saturday.
Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: “I don’t have good news.
“I don’t have news because I don’t want to give news based on an initial approach but I don’t think the news is very good, he has a problem in his knee, is the same knee but not the same local, was internal, now external, so let’s wait a couple of more days but out of the game tomorrow.
“Is not an ACL, a complete rupture of any structure of the knee, we are not going so far as that but we need him.
“Champions League is arriving and lots of tough matches to play and probably we are going to lose for a few weeks. Two, three four or five, I cannot say at the moment.”
Ahead of his news conference, Mourinho told MUTV that he is hopeful Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be fit enough to return to action by the end of February.
