Belgium Confirm Marouane Fellaini Knee Ligament Injury

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has suffered medial ligament damage in his left knee that will rule him out for a "couple of weeks", the Belgium national team has confirmed.

"We are all anxious about Fellaini", Roberto Martinez, the Belgium manager, said after the game.

Marouane Fellaini was forced off after 29 minutes in Belgium's WCQ clash at Bosnia-Herzegovina with an apparent knee injury.


Manchester United chiefs are convinced Marouane Fellaini will soon agree terms over a new contract.

Mourinho won't be thrilled that he's without Fellaini at all, but the Manchester United manager will much prefer this diagnosis to the others which have been suggested. "We fear that there's ligament damage", confirmed the former Everton manager.

The news will come as a great concern back at Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho's side already short on numbers in the midfield department.


Should he be out for two weeks he will miss next weekend's Premier League trip to Liverpool.

There were initial fears that Fellaini had sustained an ACL injury, and the Belgian FA did little to ease those fears for United fans.

Fellaini's withdrawal was clearly felt as it allowed Bosnia to equalise, but the already-qualified Belgium went on to win 4-3 in the end.


In all United have six games during a month that includes flying to Lisbon to play Benfica in their third Champions League group match three days after facing J├╝rgen Klopp's team. Manchester United are now placed at second position in the Premier League with six wins and one draw in seven matches.
