Sir Alex Ferguson has raised the possibility that John O'Shea might be sidelined for two more months.
The Manchester United utility man sustained a thigh injury during the Republic of Ireland's shattering World Cup exit in France last month that Ferguson initially felt was nothing more than a dead leg, but O'Shea has not played since.
"There is no sign at all of recovery for John," said Ferguson. "It is his first injury at the club and he is a big loss because he is such a versatile player. We just want to get him back but it could be a couple of months yet."
