Silvestre Dislocated His Shoulder

Silvestre Dislocated His Shoulder

French left-back Mikael Silvestre dislocated his shoulder at the end of the 1-0 win over Lille in the Champions League and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Silvestre went into a challenge with Tavlaridis and ended up on the ground, in great pain. This latest casualty will do no good to Sir Alex's mood as he's already lost Solskjaer, Saha, Fletcher and for three matches, Scholes.

"It`s not looking good at all for Mikael," said Sir Alex Ferguson. "It appears to be a dislocation of the shoulder. It`s a big blow for us because in the space of a week we`ve lost five players.

"Louis is out for four weeks and we hope it is just that, but you never know with hamstring injuries. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is out until 31 March and Henrik is going back to Helsingborg next week."

So, the OPTIMISTIC scenario is that Saha is out for ONLY four weeks? God save us. And Smudger, step forward.

Larsson's farewell to Old Trafford was stylish from the man but his inevitable departure will make us forget tonight's joy and shift our focus to the loss it represents. Smith, according to Fergie was not in perfect condition to play but now he must play some part: for example, the frustrated and ineffective Rooney will be our only fit striker when we take on Bolton on March 17 - apart from Smudger, of course.

Silvestre's injury? I feel terribly sorry for him but I must admit I felt a relief when I saw it was not Ferdinand or Carrick lying there but Silvestre... we have two left-backs and three-centre backs and O'Shea can play in both positions so the Frenchman can be replaced.
