Arsène Wenger believes Manchester United can still fight for the Premier League title despite losing Wayne Rooney to injury.
The England striker sustained ankle ligament damage in a Champions League Quarter-Final defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
After initial fears that the Premier League's top goalscorer would miss the World Cup, Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed on Friday that his striker would be out for two to three weeks.
But Wenger says that doesn't mean the Red Devils' title challenge is over. Speaking at his pre-Wolves press conference on Friday afternoon, the manager was asked how much Manchester United will miss Rooney.
"It is difficult to say how much and to give a percentage," he replied.
"But if you are to ask Man United if ideally they want him, they will say yes. If you ask if they can still fight for the title without him, they say yes. But they lose a main goalscorer."
