Rio Ferdinand is confident Manchester United will cope without Antonio Valencia for the next four weeks.

Valencia was only on the field for a matter of minutes in Amsterdam on Thursday night, but pulled a hamstring as he helped create Javier Hernandez's match-clinching effort in the 2-0 Europa League win over Ajax. Although the winger was immediately replaced by Sir Alex Ferguson, the United boss confirmed afterwards that Valencia would be missing for the next four weeks.

"It's a really big blow because Antonio's been a fantastic player for us this season," he said. "But when somebody gets injured or loses form at this club the manager can always call upon another player to perform."
