Chris Smalling out for 10 weeks

A set back for Chris Smalling and Manchester United was announced today from the Red’s boss. Smalling looks set to be out for around a further 10 weeks after undergoing an operation on a metatarsal injury to his right foot.

Ferguson was happy with the progress that Smalling was making before this set back, meaning he will miss the at least the first few weeks of the new season.

Sir Alex Ferguson, speaking to MUTV before the teams pre-season match vs Ajax Cape Town had this to say:

“He got an injury on the Wednesday and, straight away, we decided to have the operation so he’s out”

“It’s difficult to say with a metatarsal but it could be 10 weeks.”

“He’s not carrying any luck, the kid, but he’s young and we’ve done the right thing in getting it done immediately and getting him back on the road as quickly as we can.”


Enjoy that? Give it a share!
