Manchester United Break Their Players

Rather clumsily and very much like last season, Manchester United seem to be rather good at breaking their players. The latest two injuries are Gabriel Heinze and Roy Keane.

Heinze is looking unlikely to figure for the rest of the season and is a serious doubt for Argentina's world cup squad in Germany; while Keane is now unlikely to figure in The Republic of Ireland's final qualifying matches.

This will no doubt be the trend this season. Football clubs can deny it all they like but players play far too many games (whatever happened to the closed season ?) and the extra stresses placed on the body mean that longer term injuries occur more frequently.

Once again the World Cup Finals will be without some great players. Heinze is just the first of many.
