Manchester United defender Maria Thorisdottir out for remainder of season with foot injury
United currently sit top of the WSL table, ahead of Manchester City on goal difference and one point clear of defending champions Chelsea, who have a game in hand.
Thorisdottir has made five WSL appearances this season for United, who have six league games to play and also remain in contention for the FA Cup, with a semi-final against Brighton set for next month. A United statement read: "Manchester United Women can today confirm that Maria Thorisdottir has sustained a long-term mid-foot injury. "It will unfortunately rule her out for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.
"Maria will be working with our medical team on her rehabilitation, and we look forward to seeing her back in red again very soon." The 29-year-old Norway international added: "I've been knocked down many times before, and I will again bounce back even stronger and better than ever. "Tough times don't last, but tough people do. See you next season, Reds."
