Nani out for three games

NANI will be out for at least three matches after being cut to the bone by Jamie Carragher.
Shocked Manchester United medical staff could not believe the depth of the gash to Nani's left leg inflicted by the Liverpool star's horror tackle in Sunday's 3-1 Kop win at Anfield.

The cut, pouring blood, saw the player carried off in tears on a stretcher.

Bruising is so bad it has been impossible to assess the full extent of the injury. And the big problem now with such a deep wound is the possibility of the stitches bursting.

United believe Nani will miss a month's action - Saturday's home FA Cup clash with Arsenal, the Champions League return against Marseille and a Prem trip to Bolton.

After a week of international dates, United hope he will fit to return to face West Ham on April 2.

Carragher sent an apology and waited to see Nani himself. But the furious star ignored Carragher as he hobbled on crutches to the team bus.

Nani is also understood to be angry United's publicity blackout meant nobody from the club spoke out after the game to condemn the tackle.

He told fans via his Twitter account: "Thank you for your support after my injury. I hope to be back really soon."
