Man Utd's Ferdinand out for a month


Bookmark and Share

By Bryan Waters

Sunday 19 August 2012

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is expected to miss the opening month of the Premier League season after sustaining an injury in training, The Telegraph reports.



Ferdinand is understood to have sustained the injury in Friday’s training session at Carrington and with the injury believed to be a groin problem, the United defender will not make the trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton on Monday night. The 33 year old has long suffered from back issues and will be particularly disappointed that he misses the chance to partner Nemanja Vidic, who has returned from the cruciate ligament injury that kept him out all last season.


Sir Alex Ferguson will be worried about Ferdinand’s fitness, especially since he has three injured defenders already unable to begin the season. Chris Smalling has been ruled out until October following surgery on a broken metatarsal, Jonny Evans has yet to play this summer following ankle surgery and Phil Jones has been told to rest following back spasms. The United boss may have to play Michael Carrick at centre-half alongside Vidic, which will give him a selection headache in central midfield.


New signing Shinji Kagawa was expected to partner Carrick in the middle of the park, but with Carrick having to step back into central defence, the Japanese international could be partnered by veteran midfielder Paul Scholes. A surprise option that Ferguson could use would be Scottish international Darren Fletcher, who completed 90 minutes for United’s under 21 side in the Under 21 Premier League victory against Stoke City on Saturday morning.
