Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick will miss the start of the season after injuring his ankle in Wednesday's friendly in Dublin.
The England international limped out of the 7-1 victory over the Airtricity League XI after picking up the knock during the first half and Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed the 29-year-old will be out for a fortnight.
"Michael hurt his ankle on Wednesday," said Ferguson. "It is nothing serious but he will be out for a couple of weeks, so he will miss the start of the season."
