Fears Man Utd star Donny van de Beek suffered ACL injury as horror images emerge of tackle during Bournemouth win | The Sun
4th January 2023

MANCHESTER UNITED fans fear Donny van de Beek may have suffered an ACL injury against Bournemouth.

The Red Devils beat their opponents 3-0 at Old Trafford but Van de Beek was forced off through injury at the end of the first half.


After the match Erik ten Hag said of the Dutchman's injury: "We need to wait 24 hours, but it is not looking very good."

Images show Van de Beek's knee being bent as it was pushed backwards, leading to speculation he may have damaged his ACL.

Dr. Rajpal Brar, a doctor in physical therapy, suggested 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.

Another added: "Wow, that looks awful. A sickening tackle. Hope he’s not out for too long."

And a third said: "That’s a nasty one 😩 I’m surprised he even walked off after that! That’s him out for a few months."
