Man Utd boss Moyes admits hamstring worry for Rafael

Manchester United fullback Rafael da Silva has a hamstring injury after limping off in the Community Shield yesterday.

The injury is almost irrelevant, given that the defender is already suspended from playing in next weekend's Barclays Premier League opener at Swansea City.

"Rafa said that he felt his hamstring and in a game like this when you have an opportunity to make substitutes, it was fine," manager David Moyes said. "He is suspended for the first game of the season anyway, so in a way, I wouldn't say it doesn't matter but it won't have an effect on what we do next weekend."
