Hernandez out for a month with ankle injury

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has been ruled out for a month after suffering torn ankle ligaments, The Daily Mail reports.

The Mexican forward suffered the injury in an innocuous looking fall at Villa Park and seemed to catch his ankle in the turf. Hernandez was treated on the field before being stretchered off and replaced by Antonio Valencia. United won the game 1-0 thanks to Phil Jones’ first goal for the club. Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed the news after the game and it comes as another injury blow to the club.

Michael Owen is still out injured and Dimitar Berbatov missed the game against Villa with an ankle problem. Ferguson said: ‘I think he’s torn ligaments in his ankle so he could be out for four weeks’. The Mexican missed the start of the season after suffering concussion during the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.
