 Manchester United have confirmed that Wayne Rooney will be out of the team for two months due to injury.

Wayne Rooney sidelined for two months GA post on the Manchester United website confirms that the striker Wayne Rooney will be sidelined for two months, due to his injury on Sunday. United played Reading, game ended up in a 0-0 draw, when the 21-year-old striker suffered a hairline fracture of his left foot after clashing with Michael Duberry.

 Carlos Teves is the likely substitute for Rooney, although Sir Alex Ferguson said that Rooney could return to play sooner than October. "It's two months. But you never know with these kind of fractures, hopefully it will be sooner, but that's the timescale we're putting on it at the moment," he said in a press conference. Sir Alex Ferguson also feels confident that there is enough talent to hold the castle until Wayne Rooney returns.

 Sidelined for two months, Rooney will miss the derby against Manchester City on Sunday and the 2008 Euro qualifiers against Israel and Russia.

 It is likely we will see Carlos Teves at the game with Portsmouth on Wednesday. The odds on Manchester winning that game are 1.61 at Bet365.
