Man Utd crock Smalling out ten weeks

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has been ruled out for 10 weeks with a broken metatarsal after breaking down in training last week.

The defender has been forced to undergo an operation.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "He's not carrying any luck, the kid, but we have done the right thing in getting it done immediately."

United continued their pre-season preparations against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday but they needed a late goal from Bebe to earn a 1-1 draw.
