BREAKING: Chris Smalling undergoes operation

by Sam Peoples

Speaking to MUTV just before the kick-off against Ajax Cape Town, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that Chris Smalling will be sidelined for between eight to ten weeks after undergoing an operation for a metatarsal injury he picked up on Wednesday.

The news comes as a massive blow with the season less than a month away and now that Smalling will miss a substantial part of the season, the return of Vidic is now even more important. The fitness of Jonny Evans is still up in the air and the injury to Smalling once again leaves us stretched defensively and the season hasn’t even started yet.

We hope Chris has a swift recovery.
