Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung has said that it is the responsibility for the club to deal with the huge number of injuries that they have been suffering in the past few months. Manchester United have been undergoing an injury crisis at the moment, with a number of key players like Nemanja Vidic and Rafael Da Silva injured.
As a result, players like Michael Carrick, who are central midfielders, are being deployed by manager Sir Alex Ferguson as stand-in centre backs. As a result of the makeshift defence, Manchester United have been conceding a number of goals of late. However, midfielder Park Ji-sung is of the opinion that the club should deal with the crisis given that they have a very large squad and a very strong one at that as well.
After suffering the exit from the Champions League recently, Manchester United have gone on an excellent run in the domestic campaign. However, the number of injuries that they have been suffering of late is threatening to derail the season. Manchester United also have the worry in the form of Manchester City, who clearly have the best squad in the division. Even with a number of injuries and the players departing to the African cup of nations, Roberto Mancini can put out a very strong side. Hence, Manchester United do need to perform well without the excuse of many injuries.
“I have never known anything like it. Hopefully we will get our defenders back pretty quickly because we are coming up to some very important games. We have to deal with it and get through this period,” said the South Korean. Manchester United will be facing Blackburn and Manchester city in the next few matches, although the match against the leaders will be in the FA Cup.
