‘It doesn’t look good’: Tedesco seems to express himself about Thomas Meunier’s European Championship

‘It doesn’t look good’: Tedesco seems to express himself about Thomas Meunier’s European Championship

Disappointment for the Red Devils. Fifteen minutes later, Thomas Meunier was forced off injured in the first leg against Luxembourg. The full-back appeared to be suffering from hamstring problems and left the field in distress. Should there be a line through the European Championships soon? National coach Domenico Tedesco thinks so: “My hopes are not high,” he said afterward.

A worried look appeared on Domenico Tedesco’s face. About 13 minutes later, Thomas Meunier – without contact – suddenly sat on the ground in front of Luxembourg. The Trabzonspor full-back grabbed his thigh and quickly realized he could no longer continue.

Maxime de Cuyper was to come fifteen minutes later.

Afterwards, the national coach gave a less optimistic update: “The main result of this match is that we lost Thomas,” Tedesco sighed.

“Tomorrow morning (Sunday, editor) we will have an MRI, but it doesn’t look good. I’m disappointed. We know the situation around our full-backs. It hurts. Also on a personal level – I felt in the dressing room, Thomas is a very positive and professional guest.”

Usually there are enough of us. But first let’s take a closer look at Thomas’ injury.

Tedesco, who reiterated once again that he has “not much hope” for Meunier to reach the European Championship, does not seem inclined to demand an alternative. Although it is theoretically possible until the first group match.

He added, “There are usually enough of us. But we will first take a closer look at Thomas’ injury and then analyze the situation in a calm moment.”

Axel Witsel also remained in the dressing room during the first half due to a muscle injury. “But that was just a precaution,” Tedesco said. “He said it was better not to take any risks. Hence the change.”
