Valencia to miss the rest of the season

15 Sep 2010 - 07:58:10

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering an horrific ankle injury in the Champions League goalless draw with Rangers.

The 25-year-old Ecuador international was injured in a tackle with Kirk Broadfoot, before leaving the Old Trafford pitch on a stretcher.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed: "It is a dislocation or a fracture and he gets operated on tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.

"It was an innocuous challenge but when you saw the Rangers player waving, you knew it was a bad one.

"It is a bad blow for the boy and you are talking about the rest of the season."

Meanwhile, Gers defender Broadfoot was clearly left shaken by the incident, adding: "I'm not too sure what happened.

"I just slid in and looked round and his bone was sticking out. We tried to get the physio on to help him because you don't like to see that.

"These things happen and hopefully he makes a fast recovery. I've never seen anything like that so close before.

"You see things like that on television and it's not good, but to see it there in front of you, it doesn't look nice and I just hope he recovers quickly."
