Injury update on United keeper Sergio Romero

Sergio Romero

Argentina has confirmed Sergio Romero did not sustain a serious injury after he hobbled off in his side’s embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Spain on Tuesday night.

The United goalkeeper collided with Diego Costa when the Spain striker opened the scoring in the 12th minute of the contest in Madrid and suffered a slight damage to his right knee. He was replaced by Willy Caballero as Sampaoli’s men went on to suffer a humiliating 6-1 defeat. The 31-year old underwent tests that ruled out major damage.

“Sergio Romero suffered a trauma to his right knee. The tests done have ruled out any serious bone or ligament damage,” a statement from Argentina read.

It remains to be seen if Romero will be available for United’s squad to face Swansea City on Saturday. Should he fail to be fit for the clash, youngster Joel Pereira could receive a rare call-up to the 18-man squad for the home clash.
