France defender Raphael Varane left in tears during Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea after experiencing a leg injury under a month prior to the World Cup in Qatar.
Varane, 29, fell ungracefully while attempting to challenge Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and was replaced by Victor Lindelof.
Erik ten Hag said it was too early to know how terrible the injury is.
“We need to wait 24 hours and afterward we will know what [the injury] is.” the Dutchman said
Varane, whose time in England has been hampered by injuries since departing from Real Madrid in the 2021 summer window, wouldn’t leave the pitch on a stretcher yet strolled round the edge with his face in his shirt and head buried in his hands.
Casemiro’s injury time header offset Jorginho’s late goal at Stamford Bridge and sees United stay a point behind Chelsea and the top four in the Premier League.
The World Cup begins in Qatar on 20 November.
