London, Feb. 12 (ANI): Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs won't play in the Carling Cup final after breaking his right arm in last night's 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

Giggs, 36, who will have to sit out for four weeks, would skip three Premier League games, the Champions League clash with AC Milan and the Wembley date with Villa on February 28.

He got injured at Villa Park after clashing with Steve Sidwell, The Sun reports.

"Ryan's had a plate put in his arm which will stay there for 21/2 weeks. He will still be able to train and he might be available for the second leg against Milan but it's a long haul," Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said.

Giggs's fracture has come as further blow to United with Nani banned for three games after his red card against Villa. (ANI)
