Man Utd fans concerned about Tyrell Malacia after spotting pre-season detail

Man Utd fans concerned about Tyrell Malacia after spotting pre-season detail

Manchester United have returned to pre-season training but fans voiced concerns on social media.

Manchester United fans have expressed concerns over Tyrell Malacia after the club released their first images of pre-season training.

Malacia joined United from Feyenoord in 2022, becoming Erik ten Hag's first signing for a fee of £13 million.

He made 39 appearances in all competitions in his debut season, including 22 games in the Premier League, as United won the Carabao Cup.

But after playing in United's final game of the season against Newcastle, Malacia was forced to undergo knee surgery in the summer of 2023.

The 24-year-old has not featured in over a year following on from the lengthy lay-off, failing to make a single appearance last term.

United fans had their first sighting of him for a long time at Wembley in May following the FA Cup final triumph over Manchester City.

Yet while he was part of those celebrations, fans have become concerned after failing to see Malacia in official pictures posted by the club after the senior team returned to pre-season training this week.

It has not been confirmed whether he was at their Carrington training base with the rest of the squad, only that he wasn't pictured in any photos released by the club on their official social media channels.

One supporter wrote: "No picture of Malacia at Carrington today."

Another commented: "I hope he comes back soon. Feel horrible the way it's gone for him, especially after he had a pretty successful first season. Need him back ASAP!!"

A third asked: "Where's Malacia @ManUtd."

A fourth also reacted, writing: "Where's Malacia?"

A final person commented: "Hopefully he did train and they just didn't picture him."

A Manchester United spokesperson has confirmed to SPORTbible that Malacia is still continuing his recovery from injury.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Netherlands international is away from first-team training and there is no timeframe on when he will return.

United were handed a boost at left-back this week as Luke Shaw was back on the pitch, coming off the bench to help England beat Switzerland in the Euro 2024 quarter finals after being out since February.
