'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Injury Worries Mount For Man Utd

Sir Alex Ferguson has told MUTV that Manchester United might have to start the campaign without some of our World Cup stars.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Louis Saha and Mikael Silvestre have only just returned to training and Gabriel Heinze, Nemanja Vidic and Gary Neville are all injured.

Sir Alex said: 'I think we`ve got to start thinking about what the team will be on the first day of the season. It won`t include some of the World Cup players. We'll have to depend on the ones we know are 100 per cent fit, players that have a few games behind them and are really sharp for that opening game.'

The injuries seem to be mounting up and Rio Ferdinand (ankle) and John O'Shea (dead leg) have picked up knocks.

Ferguson said 'We've got two weeks before the start of the season so we should hopefully be OK. O'Shea should be out for a few days and hopefully Rio will be ready for the Sevilla game. There was a little bit of swelling around Rio's ankle so you can't take chances after our experiences last year.'
