Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed today that Nani won’t make it back in time for our league game against Bolton next weekend, meaning he will miss at least three games and will be out for as much as four weeks, with our next possible game being away to West Ham at the beginning of April.

“We have managed to stitch the injury, which is good news,” said Ferguson. “We need to guard against infection and swelling. It is difficult to say exactly when he will be ready to return but we won’t get him back for the Bolton match next Saturday.”
