LONDON, Oct 29 (Reuters) Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes will be out for three months with knee ligament damage, the Premier League champions said today.
''He will undergo an operation on Thursday and will be out for approximately 12 weeks,'' the club said on their Web site (www.manutd.com).
Scholes, 32, suffered the injury in training ahead of last week's Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev.
He has played 12 times this season for United, scoring once.
