London - Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will be unavailable for between two and three weeks due to a knee ligament injury, manager Alex Ferguson revealed on Wednesday.

Rooney was not included in the squad for United's 4-3 win at home to Newcastle United at Old Trafford, which gave his side a seven-point lead over defending champions Manchester City in the Premier League.

United were also without striker Danny Welbeck, reportedly due to illness, and Ferguson said: "Rooney has done a ligament at the back of his knee and he will be out for two or three weeks. We are running out of ammunition."

    This is bad, but as long as he will be ready for Champions League against Real Madrid. Wish him a speedy recovery.
