Nemanja Matic will miss the start of the season after failing to recover the abdominal injury he suffered while representing Serbia at the World Cup finals.
Jose Mourinho confirmed on Sunday that the Manchester United midfielder had left the club’s US tour to go under the knife: "Matic arrived from the World Cup, holiday, direct to surgery because something happened in the World Cup," he said following the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool. "He has had surgery. He is out for the start of the season. I don't know how long he will be out for." The setback serves as another major blow for United who have already lost Antonio Valencia [calf] and Diogo Dalot [knee] from the opener against Leicester while a further eight players are yet to return following their involvement in Russia. "I just hope the boys on deserved holidays, they take care of themselves a little bit and somebody wants to do what [Marcus] Rashford and [Phil] Jones do, which is to be back a little bit earlier to help the team because we are going to be in trouble."
