Manchester United women have a new injury problem after it became known that Maria Torisdottir will now not play until the end of the season.
She suffered a long-term injury to the middle part of her foot and will work with the United medical team on her rehabilitation.
Torisdottir was injured in the 3-1 win over Lewis in the FA Cup quarter-finals, but it has only now become known about the extent of the injury.
This also means that Torisdottir will miss the Women’s World Cup for Norway as well as the rest of the domestic season.
Maria said: “Unfortunately, last Sunday in the match with Lewis, I suffered a long-term injury to the middle part of my foot. It breaks my heart that I won’t be able to participate in the World Cup this summer.”
“I’ve been knocked down many times before, and I’ll come to my senses again, stronger and better than ever.”
She continued: “Hard times don’t last long, but cool people live. See you next season, Reds.”
Torisdottir thanked her teammates for the support she received.
I’ve got the best teammates!
Thanks for all kind messages I’ve received!!
I really appreciate it❤️ https://t.co/b0vHMoZIIm

United are currently preparing for a double header against Brighton as they will play them away in the WSL and then host them in the FA Cup semi-finals.
Also in question is Lisa Naalsund, who was also injured in that match with Lewis.
We are waiting for further news on the extent of Naalsund’s injury.
