Giggs out for four weeks with broken arm
Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs will be out of action for four weeks after fracturing his right arm in Wednesday night's Premier League match at Aston Villa.
Giggs, who has been in evergreen form this season, will now miss United's Champions League second round clash with AC Milan plus the Carling Cup final with Villa at Wembley on February 28.
The veteran midfielder damaged his right arm in a collision with Steve Sidwell during the 1-1 draw at Villa Park and left the stadium with his arm in a sling.
The 36-year-old was sent for an x-ray after the match and the scans revealed the fracture. Giggs will also miss Premier League games against Everton, West Ham and Wolves.
Giggs' absence serves as a further lessening of United's squad depth. They are due to be lacking the services of Portugal winger Nani after he was red-carded for a two-footed tackle on Stiliyan Petrov. He will now also miss the Carling Cup final as part of a three-match suspension.
