MANCHESTER UNITED were plunged into crisis last night with NINE stars set to miss the big kick-off.

Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick are doubts with a virus.

Owen Hargreaves, Nani, Anderson, Cristiano Ronaldo and Park Ji Sung are crocked, while Louis Saha has been out since March and Gary Neville has calf problems.

Boss Alex Ferguson said: “You worry about having a team ready for the start of the season. I doubt if we’ll have Wayne fit for the start.

“It’s a virus we believe he picked up in Nigeria. It’s not a nice one. It’s such a bad virus that he’s not been training since we got back from Africa on July 28.

“The league season starts in 12 days’ time and he’s gone a long time without training.

“Carrick also had the virus but, hopefully, he’ll play some part against Portsmouth in the Community Shield on Sunday.” Rooney has been too weak to train — although he was pictured playing golf this week.

Recurring injuries to midfield men Hargreaves and Park have ruled them out for the opening fortnight at least.

Winger Nani is suspended for the first two Premier League games against Newcastle and Portsmouth, while Brazilian midfielder Anderson is playing at the Olympics.

Fergie is without star player Ronaldo until October as he recovers from an ankle op.

INJURED Portsmouth pair Lassana Diarra and Kanu are out of Sunday’s Community Shield clash with Manchester United.

Pompey striker Kanu, 32, has signed a new one-year deal. -TheSun

Thank goodness, Tevez wasn't called up to the olympic squad.

We really need a striker. Saha is rumoured to be going to sunderland...we need to buy.
There is no news on that player Fergie said he made a bid for.

He may not be the best but hes decent there.

Put it like this....if that team above couldn't beat Newcastle at Old Trafford, then
serious reviews have to be done. We have the backbone....Rio, Scholsey and
Carlos.....;)

Anyways, players will get back to full health soon enough so nothing to fear with
regards to players injured IMO.

How long is Ronaldo out for? 2 months is it?,,,Not long enough IMO! :p

we urgently need another quality striker , but we have all known this for the last 18 months ,for this team to truly peak.
has for worrying about injured players for the seasons opener we are only playing newcastle and currently they are dreadful ,our 2nd team could probabley beat them at home,but if this squad of players is to continue to flourish they need more striking power .

Its certainly bad news.

It makes a change us getting some publicity with injuries. Its usually Chelsea that everyone cries about having injuries, even when we're got as many.

I don't know where this article came from, but God its bad;

On Tevez ... ;)
I didn't think they'd finalised that yet?

Last I heard, United were planning to finalise a permanent deal 'sometime before Christmas'.

According to The Mirror, Schmeichel thinks Fergie is just playing some mind games by moaning about the injuries and is impressed with the depth of the current squad.

It's not too late! We can still bring in reserve players. Maybe we can create a spotlight like the bat signal only with a Red Devil on it...

Yeah I like The Dark Knight. :eek:
