Recently, Paul McShane has publicly revealed the extent of the damage done to his leg by Manchester United’s MarouaneFellaini. He has taken into social media the condition of the wounf which came as a result of a vicious stamp from Fellaini. The injury was the result when the Hull defender was on the wrong end of a studs-up challenge on the final game of the season; earned Fellaini a red card at the end of this term.
McShane posted a picture on Instagram with the caption: “Healing well everyone. Looks like Edward Scissor hands just gave me a leg massage.”
The Belgian star will also serve a three-match ban at the start of next term, while McShane’s future is unclear after he topped a list of players released by relegated City. Fellaini had been on the pitch for just 18 minutes when he was given the marching orders, for an incident which left McShane with a huge scar in his leg.
Fellaini was then branded as ‘unbelievably stupid’ by his manager Louis van Gaal for the incident, as the consequence will strongly affects the Manchester United’s run. He said: “I could not see that from the bench, but I think it was a red card because the Paul McShane needed seven minutes to stand up.” For the next season, Fellainin starts as a substitute and become unavailable due a three-match ban, because he has to sit in the stands suspended. “That is very bad for a player and also bad for the manager and the team. It is worse for the individual player, because this season he also started in the stands,” added the Manchester United’s boss.
McShane’s week went from bad to worse after he was released by Hull following the club’s relegation on Sunday (24/5). Republic of Ireland international McShane is currently beginning his search for a new club, with many Hull supporters expressing their sadness over his departure on Twitter. The player spent seven years at the KC Stadium, during which he made 136 appearances and most notably earning promotion to the Premier League with the Tigers in the 2012/2013 season.
Hull manager Steve Bruce said on the club’s official website: “regrettably following relegation, we have made the decision to release the majority of those players whose contracts have expired. We would like to place on record our thanks for the service they have given to the club, particularly our two longest-serving players, Liam Rosenior and Paul McShane. Both players have been outstanding for us and they leave with our very best wishes for their futures.
