Not happy he is injured, I wouldn't wish injury to any player but I won't lie and say the Idea that he may never play for us again doesn't amuse me.

Garcia wants to go to Barca, so what? Dont be so mean on a player, you didnt behave like this with Sane saga when Bayern literally spits on us. Garcia is a professional, you want someone to blame? Put it on Pep, should have played THB instead of him. Stop behaving like Utd fanbas
