United boosted by Possebon news

Manchester United have been boosted by the news that Rodrigo Possebon did not get his leg broken by Middlesbrough captain Emanuel Pogatetz.

The talented midfielder was left in agony following a challenge from Pogatetz as United recorded a 3-1 victory in the Carling Cup at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Possebon was later given the all-clear after spending the night in hospital.

"We can confirm that Rodrigo did not suffer a break to his right leg," a club spokesperson told the club's official website.

"He was kept in hospital overnight for observation and to assess whether there was any ligament damage to his knee."
