Sir Alex Ferguson had indicated that Antonio Valencia would be missing for the entire season after suffering a horrible injury in our 0-0 draw against Rangers.
However, it looks as though Valencia could return before the end of the season.
“The operation went well,” a club spokesperson told United’s official website.
“A plate has been inserted to stabilise the fracture but there is obvious significant ligament damage that follows a dislocation and he will be out for a good portion of the season.”
