Shinji Kagawa out another four weeks

Shinji Kagawa faces at least another four weeks on the sidelines, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Monday.

The Manchester United midfielder has been absent since suffering a knee injury against Braga at Old Trafford last month.

Initially, Ferguson said he expected the Japan international to be back in action within four or five weeks.

However, speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League encounter with Galatasaray in Istanbul, Ferguson adjusted that timetable.

"His progress has been quite slow actually," Ferguson said. "He hasn't started any outside work and, looking now, he may be another four weeks away."

It is a major blow for the 23-year-old, who has made an impressive start to his United career following a £12million ($19.08 million) summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

With two goals in his first eight appearances, Kagawa had offered Ferguson a valuable attacking option.

Now he will probably not be seen again until the Christmas program at the earliest, which is hardly ideal given the strength of competition to get into the United side on a regular basis.

"Overall, he will probably be looking at 6-7 weeks since the injury," said Ferguson. "The first job now is to get him back."
