Karacan picked up the injury during the 1-0 defeat at Liverpool last weekend after he twisted his knee in a challenge with Steven Gerrard.

The 23-year-old underwent scans during the week and was forced to sit out Saturday's thrilling 3-3 draw with Fulham at the Madejski Stadium.

He also missed the start of the season as he battled back from a four-month lay-off due to an ankle injury and he faces yet more time out.

"For those asking looks like im (sic) going to be out for around 6 weeks... gutted to be injured again but could have been worse," he wrote on his Twitter page tonight.

"Thanks for all of your messages and support, means alot & ill be back on the pitch as soon as i can! thanks again."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
