As if facing Bayern wasn’t already hard enough, Man United are going to have to do it without the player who effectively got them there.
In crushing news for United, which somehow seems to have been obfuscated until now, Robin van Persie has been ruled out for 4 – 6 weeks with a sprained knee injury picked up on Wednesday night, which will certainly rule him out of the Bayern Munich quarter final, on April 1 and 9.
The club confirmed the crushing blow via Twitter this Saturday morning.
So the task now falls to Danny Welbeck to score the goals to knock out Bayern Munich…
