Rafael sidelined for Red Devils

26 January 2011 11:30
Manchester United full-back Rafael will miss Saturday's FA Cup tie with Southampton after being carried off on a stretcher at Blackpool with concussion. The Brazilian defender was involved in a sickening collision with Marlon Harewood and was taken to hospital for X-rays. Thankfully, he was quickly given the all-clear and was able to return to Manchester with his team-mates following the dramatic 3-2 win. However, as with all cases of concussion, United will ensure Rafael gets the correct break from physical contact and the 20-year-old will not travel to the south coast for this weekend's fourth-round tie.
