Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled Rio Ferdinand out for another three to four weeks with a thigh injury.

Ferdinand suffered a slight tear in his thigh during training last week ahead of the Premier League opener against Birmingham.

Initially Ferguson felt Ferdinand would only be sidelined for a couple of weeks.

However, that estimate has now been revised and Ferguson said: "Rio is going to be out for three to four weeks."
