Heartbreak for Rafael: Injury revelation sheds new light on Inter tie...

United fans will be shocked to learn that Rafael da Silva sustained a hairline fracture during the Blackburn game last weekend; the ankle injury means that the brilliant Brazilian will be out of action for at least a month. It also means that Rafael will miss Sunday's Carling Cup Final against holders Spurs at Wembley. Better news to report for United's other young players who have been ever present in the Carling Cup, as Fergie has confirmed that Danny Welbeck and Darron Gibson will start the Final.

Earlier this week United travelled to the San Siro for the first-leg of the Champions League round of 16, going into the Inter Milan tie United fans were blissfully unaware that United's young Brazilian star Rafael da Silva had suffered a serious injury; the speculation leading up to Tuesday's game in Milan suggested that Rafael would play if John O'Shea or Jonny Evans failed to recover from their respective injury problems. The Rafael injury was kept under wraps and the true extent of United's injuries was actually worse than had been revealed.

The injury revelation concerning Rafael could also explain why Jonny Evans had pain killing injections which enabled him to face Inter Milan.
