‘God please watch over’, ‘Man, we need this’ – Manchester United fans fear the worst as the 29-year-old star is set to be embroiled in the action during the UEFA Nations League


Manchester United fans were worried to see Raphael Varane in the French starting XI for their UEFA Nations League against Austria on Thursday 22 September.

Varane was named the team’s captain in the absence of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Didier Deschamps has decided to entrust his international debut to AS Monaco duo Benoit Badiashile and Youssouf Fofana.

Varane has been rock solid at the back for United so far this season. The Frenchman has formed a strong partnership with new Lisandro Martinez for Erik ten Hag’s side.

However, Manchester United fans fear fielding the former Real Madrid star for 90 minutes could hurt him. Considering the centre-back’s importance to the Red Devils this season, any kind of fitness issues for the player would be a blow to the team.

Fans rallied on social media and prayed to God to protect the Frenchman so he wouldn’t get hurt. Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter:

@PSGhub Varane please don’t get hurt 😭👍🏾

Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi has been an eternal footballing debate for a while. However, a new debate between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland is currently brewing.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes recently gave his verdict on the matter. Speaking to his former teammate Gary Neville on The Overlap, the iconic midfielder chose the Frenchman over the Norwegian.

While Scholes acknowledged that Haaland is amazing on his own merits, he believes Mbappe has more to offer in the game than just scoring goals. He said:

“I would go Mbappe, there’s more to his game. He’s more than a centre-forward, he can go far, he can dribble past people, he can play a deuce.

“Look at Haaland is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but he’s [just] a goalscorer isn’t he.

Watch Paul Scholes talk to Gary Neville:

Kylian Mbappe, 23, has scored ten goals in nine games for Paris Saint-Germain this season.

Haaland, 22, has enjoyed an absolutely astonishing start to his career at Manchester City after completing a £51m summer move from Borussia Dortmund. He has scored 14 goals and provided one assist in ten games for the Citizens so far this season.
