Manchester, England, Dec 26: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney faces spending up to three weeks out with a knee injury.



Manager Alex Ferguson says the injury was sustained while the player tried to hit a volley toward the end of training on Tuesday.

Ferguson says Rooney “strained a ligament behind the knee. It's unfortunate, and he could be out for two to three weeks.”

The England international missed United's 4-3 win over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Ferguson didn't specify which knee was injured.
