Manchester United insist that striker Louis Saha will be back sooner rather than later from injury.
There has been speculation the Frenchman is out for the remainder of the season with knee ligament damage.
However, chief executive David Gill has dismissed that suggestion.
'He only has a slight knock, ' Gill told Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme.
'He is not going to be out for the rest of the season - I know that for a fact.''
Saha has been troubled by a series of injuries since his £12.8m move to Old Trafford from Fulham in 2004.
He had knee surgery in the summer and has scored four goals so far this season.
