Cleverley, Young ruled out of Man Utd’s Champions League clash with Otelul Galati

Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young will not play for Manchester United in tomorrow night’s Champions League meeting with Otelul Galati.

Tom Cleverley and Ashley Young will not play for Manchester United in tomorrow night’s Champions League meeting with Otelul Galati.

The Red Devils host the Romanians in Group C but will be without midfielder pair Cleverley and Young with the former injuring his ankle on the weekend and the latter missing the meeting with Everton on Saturday with a foot/ankle problem of his own.

“Cleverley won't play tomorrow," United boss Sir Alex Ferguson told reporters. "It's not serious but it's one of those injuries where he got a little tweak on it on Saturday.

"We'll look at the long view and make sure he's available for a long period rather than play him again and risk it coming back to haunt us. I think he'll miss Saturday's game also.

"Rafael is back but Chris Smalling and Ashley Young are still injured. We've got a few niggling injuries about the place but hopefully they're on the mend, most of them.

"We'll have to make one or two changes tomorrow but hopefully we'll be strong enough."
