Last Champions League game for Manchester United against Aalborg ended in a 3-0 victory for the Red devils, but also ended with the injury of one of the most important midfield player Paul Scholes.

After playing just 16 minutes in the match Paul Scoles wasn’t able to continue, and had to be substituted by Ryan Giggs.
Scholes serious injury looked like it would keep him out for 8 weeks in the beginning but after being investigated by the club medical staff it looks like the damage is even worse and he won’t be playing for at least 10 weeks.
Sir Alex Ferguson stated that he’s happy with his team efforts in the match against Aalborg but he’s disappointed that he lost one of the team’s key player.
This could cost Manchester United because besides Scholes‘s injury ,Rafael is also injured and Rooney has an ankle problem.
With Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves currently on the sidelines, Ferguson will have difficulties in assembling the first eleven.
Probably now most people are asking if it’s worth risking to lose an important player like Scholes in an apparently easy game.

    Anyone hates to lose a key player in the opening moments of a match.
