Michael Carrick suffers ligament damage

Roy Hodgson believes Manchester United midfielder has suffered a nasty injury

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick may have suffered ligament damage, according to England manager Roy Hodgson.

The United man was stretchered off in the second-half of England’s friendly with Spain, and after the game, Hodgson confirmed that the injury looks like a nasty one to the veteran.

Carrick played the whole match until the last minute when he landed awkwardly on his ankle, and Hodgson believes it could be a serious injury for the United man.

Speaking after the game, Hodgson admitted he’s fearing the worst for the 34-year-old.

Not Good for Carrick

“It doesn’t look good,” Hodgson said.

“He’s got a severely twisted ankle, which normally means ligament damage. But we wont know until the X-ray or scan tomorrow.”
