Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Gary Neville will miss the next 10 days of Manchester United's pre-season programme after suffering a groin injury in training on Thursday.

Neville has flown back to England for treatment and has been ruled out of the remainder of United's Far East tour, the Audi Cup in Munich next week, when United will place two games, the first against Boca Juniors on Wednesday and, in all probability, the Old Trafford friendly with Valencia on August 5.

"Gary Neville tweaked his groin yesterday in training," said Ferguson following his side's 3-2 win over FC Seoul. "He will probably be ready in about 10 days."

He added: "It would have been silly to keep him here if he was not going to play so we sent him home."
