Man Utd star Christian Eriksen provides huge injury update on Instagram

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen has hinted that he is close to returning to first-team action following an ankle injury.

The Dane picked up the setback after a horrendous tackle from Reading’s Andy Carroll in January and he has since been on the sidelines.

Eriksen initially had a protective boot on his left leg but the midfielder recently confirmed that he had started walking with trainers.

The 31-year-old has now provided a fresh Instagram update where he has been spotted wearing football boots for the first time since his injury.

Eriksen should return to United duty in April

United boss Erik ten Hag has already confirmed that Eriksen will return in April and it appears the midfielder is making the right progress.

The €25 million-rated star has hinted that he has returned to the grass for individual training and he could be involved with the team in a couple of weeks’ time.

The Newcastle United game on April 1 could come too early for him but we won’t be surprised if he is available to face Brentford five days later.

Ten Hag will most likely ease him into the proceedings. He could make a couple of cameo appearances before being reinstated into the starting XI.

Aside from Eriksen, United will be hoping that Alejandro Garnacho will also be available for the season run-in following his unfortunate ankle injury.

The Argentine has been spotted with a moon boot on his right leg and his recovery could take more time. Hopefully, he will be available for the final month.
