Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says there's no preventable reason for their injury crisis.

Ferguson also confirmed Wayne Rooney missed some training last week.

Ferguson told Sirius XM radio station: "We're trying hard to get Rio Ferdinand for (Wednesday) and Ryan Giggs which would make a good difference to us.

"Anderson should be better, he had 45 minutes on Saturday after four months out. There are no other ones to come back immediately. And Wayne Rooney will be available of course.

"We had a few training sessions which he missed. You've got to be fit to play in this league, you can't miss training sessions."

Asked about United's injury problems, which have also included the loss of defender Nemanja Vidic for the rest of the season, Ferguson added: "We're getting a lot of impact injuries, contact injuries. Maybe the way we play creates that because we're always wanting to have the ball and we're always wanting to play."
