It was bad news for Manchester United on Friday morning as David Moyes released the news that Wayne Rooney had been sent to Egypt to receive some hot-weather treatment and training for his latest groin injury, meaning that Rooney would miss United’s Premier League clash with Swansea City at Old Trafford.
Rooney posted a message to Manchester United fans on Friday evening with a rallying message to get behind the team and more importantly the manager.
