Scholes To Miss Season Opener

Paul Scholes is set to miss the season opener against Reading at Old Trafford, after Sir Alex confirmed the midfielder would be out for three-weeks to a month.

It was reported prior to Manchester United`s match against Chinese side Shenzhen that Scholes had been sent home from the tour with an "injury", however, speaking to MUTV after the 6-0 win, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that Scholes had suffered an injury to his knee when falling awkwardly on it in the previous match.

'Paul fell on his knee in the last game. We've sent him home for arthroscopy to see what kind of damage there is."

Ferguson went on to speculate on the possible length of the midfielders absence, confirming him as a major doubt for the season opener against Reading at Old Trafford.

'We don't think it's serious but it could keep him out for three weeks or a month."

Well, at least its not as bad as it could have been, with many united fans, along with myself probably expecting the worse when the news first broke, for example a reoccurrence of the eye trouble which left him out of action for a season. Plus, this will also give us an early look at what our future midfield may look like, with Carrick and Hargreaves in the centre of midfield.

Rather unfortunate but I must say that the current squad is more than capable of coping with his absence. Hopefully it's not a serious problem and he'll indeed be back in a month's time.
