Manchester United star suffers season ending injury, career at United might be over

Manchester United player Nick Powell who is on loan at Hull City has suffered a thigh injury and his season looks to be over. Powell who was bought by Sir Alex Ferguson has struggled to make progress at Old Trafford and was sent on loan to Hull City this year. But sadly injuries seem to have disrupted his season again and it is highly unlikely that he will be given one more chance at Man United.

He is out of contract this summer and after briefly featuring for the first team under Van Gaal was given the opportunity to go out and loan and prove that he deserves a new contract. But his problems with fitness and injury have continued as he is set to miss the rest of the season.

This season lot of youngsters have got the chance to play first team football at United under Van Gaal and some of them like Rashford and Fosu-Mensah have really stepped upto the mark. Powell sadly will be part of the thousands of young players who won’t be able to make it to the top.
