Jonny Evans blames freak incidents for Man United’s injury troubles
The Manchester United defender says 'freak' injuries cannot be prevented
Jonny Evans insists that Louis van Gaal’s training methods are not to blame for Manchester United’s current injury crisis.
The Red Devils have been without a number of key players since the Dutchman took over at Old Trafford over the summer.
But Evans, who is closing in on a comeback from the ankle injury which has kept him out since September, says that freak incidents are to blame for United’s injury woes.
“Players don’t get injured on purpose,” Evans told MUTV.
“There have been injuries with the odd hamstring or groin, there have been quite a few of those, but [Marcus] Rojo dislocated his shoulder and I had a fracture in my foot.
“There were a couple of other injuries – Phil Jones has got one [shin splints] that came out of the blue. We don’t want any more injuries but what can we do about it?
“They’re freak injuries and it’s difficult from that point of view. It’d be nice to get settled in the team – everyone in the squad wants to get settled in their position as well.”
