Kobbie Mainoo limps off pitch with injury before Jude Bellingham scores in horror start for Man Utd against Real Madrid | The Sun
MANCHESTER United suffered a nightmare opening in a friendly against Real Madrid, losing starlet Kobbie Mainoo to an injury TWO minutes after kick-off.
And it immediately got worse for the Red Devils as while they were temporarily down to 10 men, Jude Bellingham opened the scoring.
Mainoo got hurt in a particularly unfortunate manner.
Casemiro fouled Rodrygo as he charged past his fellow Brazilian and charged at Andre Onana's goal.
As the Real Madrid star lost balance, he fell to the ground while also taking down Mainoo.
The 18-year-old midfielder needed medical attention after the collision.

He then limped off the field with the help of United trainers.
Shortly after, as Christian Eriksen was getting ready to replace Mainoo, Bellingham netted for Real Madrid.
The English midfielder seemed to be offside as he received a lob pass from Antonio Rudiger inside Onana's box.
But the official's flag stayed down after Bellingham calmly chipped the ball over the United keeper and into the net, bagging his first goal for Real Madrid.
