Ashley Young out of Sunday's game

Ashley Young has been ruled out of Manchester United’s game on Sunday away at Southampton due to a knee injury.

At this morning’s press conference Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed what the Football Association had said earlier this week regarding Ashley Young, SAF also goes on to talk about injuries to Wayne Rooney and Jonny Evans.

“In terms of injuries, it was nice of the FA to let everyone know Ashley Young is injured,” said Sir Alex. “He’s out after the injury last week. It’s not serious.

“Centre-back is our main concern at the moment. Jonny Evans played on Wednesday [against Tottenham at Under-21 level] and came through fine. He’s the strongest option we’ve got.

“Phil Jones has done some training but isn’t ready yet. Rio Ferdinand’s in the same boat. At least we have one centre-back available, which is an improvement. It allows us to put Michael Carrick back in midfield.

“Wayne’s out for four weeks. It’s nothing serious on the actual gash – it’s a bad one but it was treated carefully very quickly. We don’t expect any complications from it. I think he’ll be back in four weeks. The fact it’s a gash and not a muscle or joint injury means he can do a lot of work in the gymnasium. We’re not too bad with that.”
