Man Utd defender Ferdinand still struggling with injury

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand continues to struggle with injury.

The Mirror says Ferdinand will not travel with Manchester United to Marseille today and is a big doubt for Saturday's Premier League trip to Wigan.

England captain Ferdinand has been sidelined since suffering a calf injury during the warm-up before United's 2-1 defeat at Wolves on February 5.

It was hoped Ferdinand would be fit to face Wigan, but United do not want to rush him back, with huge back-to-back Premier League trips away to Chelsea and Liverpool looming.

Although Ferdinand has resumed light training, he has yet to join in with the first-team squad and is unlikely to do so until the back end of the week.
