Erik ten Hag provides update on injury to Man Utd defender Raphael Varane after Manchester derby


The Frenchman didn’t go down the tunnel for treatment upon his withdrawal, but Ten Hag detailed that the injury was significant enough to bring his afternoon to an early conclusion.

“I don’t think so, that he would have carried on [if the score would have been closer],” Erik responded to a question about the defender’s substitution, in his post-match press conference. 

“But you get him off because when you are 4-0 down, you don’t want to take a risk to get a bigger injury. 

“But I think it’s that big, the injury, that he couldn’t carry on.”
