Christian Eriksen sends message to forgotten Man Utd star after positive injury update
| Last updated
Manchester United star Christian Eriksen has sent a message to team-mate Donny van de Beek as he continues his recovery from injury.
Van de Beek has been out of action since suffering a knee injury against Bournemouth in January, with the 25-year-old set to be out for the remainder of the season.
It was a major blow for the Dutchman, who had missed out on his nation's World Cup squad and had made only six Premier League appearances this season prior to the Bournemouth fixture.
He has since been working hard on his recovery in the gym - and you can see his video update below.
Captioning the video on Instagram, Van de Beek wrote: "Trust the process. Step by step."
Eriksen responds to Donny van de Beek video
Van de Beek received plenty of support in the comments section of his video - including from United team-mate Eriksen.
The Denmark international is currently in the process of rehabilitation himself, having suffered an ankle injury against Reading in January.
United boss Erik ten Hag originally gave a timeframe of at least until the end of April for Eriksen's recovery, although stated last week that he could return at some point during the month.
Eriksen responded to his team-mate with a raised hands and fire emoji to show his support.
Van de Beek also received a message from 2022 UK Open darts champion, Danny Noppert, former United team-mate Timothy Fosu-Mensah, and the brother of Wesley Sneijder, Rodney.
Speaking about the midfielder's injury in January, Ten Hag said that it would not affect Van de Beek in the long term.
He explained (quotes via United's official website): "Of course, the bad news is he is out for the rest of the season, but the good news is, in the long term, his knee will be okay and he will be ready to play again at the highest levels and will be ready for the start of pre-season."
