David Moyes has stated that he will assess Wayne Rooney’s fitness before Manchester United travel down to Swansea City on Friday afternoon in preparation for their match on Saturday evening.
Moyes will take charge of the Premier League Champions for the first time, in a touch away game at Swansea, after an impressive outing for England, Danny Welbeck could be in line to start up top with Robin van Perise
The pre-season though, has been all about the talk that Wayne Rooney would be leaving the club, after two bids were reject from Chelsea.
Last night, Wayne Roney played 66 minutes for England against Scotland in Wednesday’s friendly at Wembley, but while Moyes remains adamant the former Everton player will not be sold, he is still to decide if he will feature at the Liberty Stadium.
Speaking with Sky Sports, Moyes said:
“(There are) no more developments. We don’t want any more because we’ve told everybody he’s not for sale,” Moyes told Sky Sports News.
“I think I need to see how he is when we get back. When I get back I will try and assess him. I watched the game last night (Wednesday). I thought for the 65 minutes he played he did well, ran around and got himself some fitness, but it was his first real outing in a competitive game.”
