Manchester United have confirmed that Sergio Romero was involved in a car accident near Carrington on Monday morning. Fortunately, United’s goalkeeper walked away unharmed.
False Alarm about Romero’s Well-being
Social Media was full of images where Romero’s Lamborghini was smashed up in the vicinity of Manchester’s training ground in Carrington.
There was a snapshot in which the vehicle wedged under a roadside barrier, with icy conditions likely to have an impact on the accident as temperatures fell below freezing in Manchester over the night.
Fans were expressing frank fear over his wellbeing. However, United confirmed that Romero did not suffer any injuries. He even trained as usual ahead of the Premier League clash against Burnley on Wednesday.
Some recent details from United’s Goalkeeper Career
Romero is the second option next to David de Gea at Manchester Utd., though he often impresses during cup competitions.
The 32-year-old United’s goalkeeper has made nine appearances this season, having last featured in United’s 1-0 win over Wolves in FA Cup third-round replay last Wednesday.
Since he joined United from Sampdoria in 2015, Sergio Romero has played 54 times in total. During his career at the club, he was helping Red Devils win the EFL Cup, FA Cup, and Europa League.
Romero watched from the bench how Red Devils fell to a 2-0 defeat against the Reds at Anfield on Sunday.
The United remain in fifth after 23 seasons. Red Devils still follow the fourth-placed Chelsea by five points in the competition for the Champions League.
After taking on Burnley in midweek, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start preparing his players for an FA Cup fourth-round tie against either Warford or Tranmere on Sunday.
United’s players will need to produce a much-improved performance to reach the final. I will not be easy after losing the first leg 3-1 at Old Trafford. But Red Devils may take confidence from a 2-1 Premier League victory at the Etihad back in December.
