Manchester United fans have been waiting for news on Shinji Kagawa's injury since he was substituted during the game against Braga in the Champions league this week. He was due to have a scan on his twisted knee the day after the match but it's taken until today's press conference with Sir Alex Ferguson for any more news to come out.
Ferguson has confirmed that it is a knee injury and said it's similar to the one Ashley Young suffered, he's also said the player will be out for around 3-4 weeks. At the 4 week extreme of that it would mean he misses eight games for the club.
Chelsea (a - Capital One Cup)
Braga (a - Champions League)
Aston Villa (a)
Norwich City (a)
Galatasaray (a - Champions league)
The club said on their official website:
Shinji Kagawa has been ruled out for three to four weeks with a knee injury, similar to the one Ashley Young suffered earlier in the season. Chris Smalling is back training on the football side of things and Phil Jones will hopefully start football training a week on Monday
It will be a frustration for Kagawa who has admitted he's yet to hit his best form for Manchester United. The former Borussia Dortmund player has shown flashes explaining why he's so highly rated but hasn't been able to bring his whole game together yet.
