Sir Alex Ferguson is worried about Gary Neville’s recurring calf injury
and reckons if the situation does not improve, then United skipper might have surgery.

‘Gary came through Saturday’s game okay and he trained on Monday but obviously, the injury has been a concern. We are holding our breath hoping it doesn’t happen again because if it does we will have to take a long-term view and do something about it.’

‘If it keeps going on and on and on, we might get to the new year having lost him for a long period,’ he said.

‘Had it just been one calf, we would be saying to ourselves ‘give it time’. But because he is getting it in the left one as well, it suggests it is something different.’
