SAD NEWS: Because of an ιnjury, Sofyan Amrabat is no longer playing for Morocco

Although Manchester United found a minor back problem during his medical, the 27-year-old nonetheless traveled to join up with his national squad earlier this week. United eventually added another defensive midfielder on deadline day as they loaned Amrabat from Fiorentina for the entire season.With an option to make the move permanent next summer for a further £21.5 million, Erik ten Hag’s squad will pay Fiorentina £8.5 million to sign Amrabat on loan. After goalkeeper Altay Bayindir, left back Sergio Reguilon, and center defender Jonny Evans, he was United’s fourth and final deadline day addition.

Staff at United discovered Amrabat had a’minor back problem’ during his physical, but decided to move forward with the transaction nevertheless because it was not considered significant. United were permitted to field a team that included Bayindir, Reguilon, and Evans in their Sunday match against Arsenal, but not Amrabat since he had not yet been registered in time.

Amrabat then made the decision to join the Moroccan squad ahead of this weekend’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Liberia and next week’s friendly against Burkina Faso. However, Yahya Jabrane has replaced him in Walid Regragui’s roster, therefore he won’t be participating in either of those games.

Before United’s first Premier League match after the international break, it is unknown if Amrabat will return to Manchester to continue his recuperation. Four days before Ten Hag’s side returns to the Champions League against Bayern Munich, on September 16, Amrabat might make his Premier League debut against Brighton.

Amrabat, at the height of his powers following his transfer to United, said earlier this week, “I want to show it on the pitch, but I can promise that I will give my best with everything; every day, every minute, every second.” That’s all I can sаy at the moment.

To quote the new player: “I am really excited to be here, I really can’t wait to start, and I promise that I will give everything that I have to help the team and make the fans proud.”

“I was 18, 19 years old and he [Ten Hag] gave me the chance to play in the first team with Utrecht,” Amrabat said when questioned about Ten Hag. “It was an amazing season for us. It was through him that I picked up a lot of useful information. In that case, he might be one of the most influential people in my professional life right now.
