Manchester United defender Maria Thorisdottir will not play again for the club this campaign, the club have confirmed.
In a statement on their website, the Red Devils revealed that the 29-year-old has suffered a “long-term mid-foot injury”, which means she won’t be available for the seven remaining fixtures.
It is a disappointing setback for Marc Skinner’s team. While Thorisdottir has not always been a regular starter this season, she has still played her part.
The former Chelsea player has made five appearances in the Women’s Super League, while also featuring in the FA Cup and Continental Cup for United.
Thorisdottir’s experience will be missed during the run-in. Skinner’s side are very much in contention for the league title, sitting first on goal difference ahead of Manchester City with six games remaining.
United are also still in the FA Cup, and they will take on Brighton in the semi-final midway through next month.
