ALEJANDRO GARNACHO has provided an update on social media after suffering an injury against Southampton.
The Manchester United youngster went down under a challenge from Saints ace Kyle Walker-Peters late on in Sunday's 0-0 draw.
Garnacho was then spotted leaving Old Trafford on crutches after the match.
And now the 18-year-old has revealed on Instagram that he is set for a spell on the sidelines.
The teenager confirmed he has been forced to withdraw from the Argentina squad for this month's internationals.
As well as Argentina's games against Panama and Curacao, he will also miss United's upcoming fixtures against Real Betis and Fulham in the Europa League and FA Cup ahead of the break.
