Erik ten Hag Provides Casemiro Head Injury Update


Casemiro, who had recently returned from a lengthy injury absence, was substituted after 53 minutes due to a collision with Fulham midfielder Harrison Reed.

The Brazilian player underwent thorough on-field medical attention before being accompanied off the field by head of sports medicine Gary O’Driscoll, showing evident discomfort following the incident.



“I don’t know if it’s concussion but it’s definitely head to head,” Erik ten Hag said afterwards.

“I actually don’t know [what’s wrong] but he had to come off.

He had to come off so we have to speak with the doctor, and the medical team, to see how he’s doing.

He couldn’t continue the game. We have all seen that. We had to take him off and, hopefully, he’s better [on Sunday].”

Casemiro’s resurgence in health and performance was a contributing factor to Manchester United‘s four consecutive Premier League victories leading up to the Fulham match.

Rasmus Hojlund‘s scoring prowess played a crucial role, with the Danish striker’s recent absence due to injury noticeably affecting the team’s dynamics.

Manchester United‘s upcoming fixture is on Wednesday night, where they will face Nottingham Forest in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.
