Oyarzabal ruled out of Real Sociedad vs Man Utd Europa League clash with hamstring injury.
Real Sociedad star Mikel Oyarzabal has been diagnosed with a hamstring problem and will miss the Spanish
side’s upcoming Europa League clash with Manchester United as a result.
The news comes as a huge blow to the San Sebastian outfit, with the 23-year-old’s scintillating form this
season playing a huge role in helping propel the club to sixth in the Liga standings.
It is currently unknown as to how long the Eibar native will have to spend on the sidelines.
Oyarzabal has been in incredible form in the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 12 goals and registering five assists
in all competitions so far.
The winger himself scored from the spot to see Sociedad finish level at 1-1 against Barcelona in the Spanish
Supercup, although the Blaugrana would eventually lift the title after a penalty shoot-out.
In a statement on Thursday, Real Sociedad said: “Mikel Oyarzabal has presented with tendinopathy
in the proximal hamstring tendons of the right thigh.
“He has begun physical therapy treatment. A return to action will depend on the evolution of his symptoms.”
It looks like it will be the tail-end of March before Oyarzabal will be back playing football, so he could miss
important fixtures not only against United, but Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
