Manchester, England – Manchester United defender Phil Jones could be out of action for up to eight weeks with a knee injury, the English Premier League giants said Saturday.
The 20-year-old suffered the injury during training earlier this week and was sent for a scan which has confirmed he faces a long lay-off.
A club spokesperson told United's official website, ManUtd.com:
“Phil Jones has had surgery on a knee meniscus tear sustained in training that will require six to eight weeks of rehabilitation.”
Jones has yet to make an appearance this term after suffering a back injury during the Reds' pre-season tour.
Fellow defender Chris Smalling remains sidelined after breaking a metatarsal, but Jonny Evans and Rio Ferdinand have bolstered United's defence by their recent returns from injury problems. – Sapa-AFP
