Ashley Young is set to be unavailable for Manchester United and England until mid-October with a knee injury, but there is better news for club and country on Wayne Rooney.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed on Friday that Young was suffering from bruised cartilage and will be out for two to three weeks, but said Rooney was in line to return from a gashed thigh at some stage next week.

On Young, Ferguson said: "Ashley Young has a bruised cartilage that is going to take two or three weeks more. We're taking our time with that one. You can easily play and train with it but we are not going down that road. We have a lot of experience of these injuries recurring when they come back too quickly."
