Subject: LUKE'S LOSS IS GREENING'S GAIN Monday, September 06, 1999 12:19 Howard Wilkinson must wish all Premiership clubs were as productive as Manchester United when it comes to young talent. Even when one United youngster limps off the international scene, the England Under-21 coach can call up another. That was the case this weekend when the injured winger Luke Chadwick was replaced by midfielder Jonathan Greening in the squad to face Poland on Tuesday. It was hard luck for Luke, who otherwise had a great first game for the national team on Friday evening. Notably, he set up the first goal for Liverpool's Steven Gerrard in a 5-0 win over Luxembourg. "I was delighted with the performances of all the debutants," said Wilkinson. "Luke Chadwick set the tone in the first minute and Ledley King continued it up until the very last minute." "I've known all the new boys for some time, having worked with some of them at Under-18 level," continued the coach. "I never really doubted what kind of players they were going to be." Previous coach Peter Taylor had already guided England Under-21s through to their equivalent of the European Championship. Manchester United can now feel proud to have provided four players for the squad - Greening, Chadwick, Wes Brown and John Curtis. Good work, lads!

Subject: MIXED WEEKEND FOR KIDS Under-19: United 0, Sunderland 2 Under-17: United 1, Sunderland 0 Neil Bailey's Under-17 side maintained their winning start to the season but they had to wait until the closing moments of the game before they could celebrate the capture of all three points. It wasn't the best of performances but at least two wins from their opening two matches has provided a solid foundation at this early stage of the campaign. Barely two minutes remained on the clock at Littleton Road when Steven Clegg crossed from the right. Matthew Williams managed to beat the Sunderland defence to the ball before heading into the bottom corner. Over at The Cliff there wasn't even the good news of a win to report as the Under-19s went down to their second successive defeat. They opened the season eight days before with a 2-0 reverse at Middlesbrough and that disappointing result was mirrored as they slipped up again against Sunderland, another side from the north east. The Reds went behind in the 27th minute to a headed goal from Kevin Kyle and when Ross Marchant added the second, after United had failed to clear a corner in the 71st minute, the writing was well and truly on the wall. United had shown plenty of commitment and enthusiasm, but in front of goal it was the visitors who proved the sharper. Late chances fell to Ian Fitzpatrick and Alan McDermott, but both failed narrowly to find the target. It just wasn't their day!

Subject: KANCHELSKIS: FERGIE FORCED ME OUT Andrei Kanchelskis has insisted there was only one reason why he left Manchester United in 1995 - Sir Alex Ferguson. The Russian international winger says he left Old Trafford for Everton when he felt he could no longer continue playing under the United boss. "I couldn't remain at Manchester United for one reason. My relationship with Alex Ferguson broke down," said Kanchelskis. "I was sometimes used, sometimes not used and I was so eager to play. "Sometimes I felt he treated me differently. Everything I did was picked upon immediately. If the team lost, the person who was guilty was me. "There was a lot of criticism, I didn't understand why," Kanchelskis told FourFourTwo magazine. The Rangers winger also rubbished the rumours which suggested he had to pay protection money to the Russian mafia. "The allegations are really funny," he said. "If I was in any way connected to the mafia, the police would be watching me, following me, investigating me." © PA Sporting Life

Subject: SILVESTRE KEEN TO MAKE HIS MARK Mickael Silvestre will have to sit out the first phase of Manchester United's defence of the European Cup - but he is hell bent on producing performances to silence his critics. United expect to tie up the 22-year-old Frenchman's transfer by the weekend after agreeing a £4million deal with Inter Milan. Silvestre will have to miss United's early Champions League matches because his transfer comes after the European deadline. But he is determined to make his mark with the Treble winners after a frustrating time in Serie A and said: "I'm going to answer my critics by showing exactly what I can do on the pitch. "There were problems last season and I was criticised, but a lot of time I was played out of position. "Now I'm just looking forward to joining United - and I don't believe I'm going there just to sit on the bench. "I'm glad Inter gave me the chance to join them because that brought me a lot of attention. "If it had not been for that I would not now be joining the greatest team in Europe. I hope to be there as soon as possible." Silvestre has also been attracting interest from Liverpool but United spokesman Ken Ramsden confirmed that Inter have accepted a bid from the Old Trafford club. "We have agreed terms with Inter Milan and our people are meeting with Mickael Silvestre's representatives to agree the player's terms," said Ramsden. Silvestre is currently away with the France Under-21 squad, who play in Armenia tonight. He began his career with Rennes in France and made 18 Serie A appearances for Inter last season, but his chances suffered this term following the arrival of Greek international left-back Grigorios Georgatos. Silvestre caught United's eye when he played for Inter against them in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals in Italy last season. The versatile player, who was used as a left-back by Inter, can also play at the centre of defence where United have an injury crisis with Ronny Johnsen, David May and Wes Brown all out of action. © PA Sporting Life

Subject: Current first team squad injury list Jesper Blomqvist Having resumed training for a few weeks after an earlier injury, Jesper is still having some problems with his right knee, which have yet to be accurately diagnosed. He's expected to see a specialist about them during the last week of August. Wes Brown Cruciate ligament problem; initially it was thought this would keep him out for the entire season, but he's now expected to resume training some time in October. Mark Bosnich Hamstring injury. Should resume training by the second week in September. Denis Irwin Took a knock to his ankle playing against Yugoslavia in early September, but should be fit again in time for the Liverpool game on September 11th. Ronnie Johnsen Will shortly undergo an operation for Jumper's Knee. He'll be out until at least Christmas, and even then it's not guaranteed that the operation will be successful. However early talk of the end of Johnsen's career fortunately now seems as though it might have been a trifle premature. Roy Keane Damaged a hamstring playing for Ireland against Yugoslavia in early September. Will probably be out until mid September at least. David May Strained ligaments; will be out until at least the end of September. http://www.redrants.co.uk/injuries.html

Subject: From Ronnie Johnsen Homepage Finally, my painful knees where operated upon. Yesterday I finally had my bad knees operated. I really had no choice. We have tried to avoid the operation, due to only 60-70% chance of a good outcome. I've been through numerous tests, not to mention x-rays. We had good faith in that I should be able to heal the injury by adjusted training. Yesterday I got the answer why this was impossible. The knees where much worse than anticipated, and this condition could only be healed by operation. Lars Engebretsen (the Norwegian team doctor) has done numerous operations like this one, but has never seen the like of it! In fact, my left knee was probably the worst he's ever seen. He felt that it was astonishing that I was able to play football with this kind of injury. The problem with "Jumpers knee" is that the ligament beneath the patella gets infected. New tissue has accumulated on the ligament, and it's this new tissue which has been removed from both knees. The operation was performed by Dr. Lars Engebretsen and Dr. Erik Rosenlund at Volvat medical centre. Engebretsen is very pleased with the operation, he called it a 100% success, and that I should recover 100%. Already today, will I be out of bead, on crouches. I will be very cautious when pressurising my knees the next 14 days. But, the recovering process will soon start. It is expected that I will use 3-4 months before I'm totally recovered, so I hope I'll be able to play matches around end of December again. 3/9/99
