Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been able to breath a sigh of relief after it was confirmed that Rodrigo Possebon has not suffered a break in his leg.
The talented midfielder was left in agony following a challenge from Middlesbrough captain Emanuel Pogatetz as United recorded a 3-1 victory in the Carling Cup at Old Trafford last 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 manutd.com.
"He was kept in hospital overnight for observation and to assess whether there was any ligament damage to his knee."
