MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will miss up to three weeks with a knee injury.
Manager Alex Ferguson says he strained a ligament behind the knee when he tried to hit a volley late in practice Tuesday.
The England star missed United’s 4-3 win over Newcastle on Wednesday. Ferguson didn’t specify which knee was injured. United remains atop the Premier League table with 46 points. Defending champion Manchester City, which lost at Sunderland Wednesday, has dropped seven points back in second.
