Wayne Rooney out for at least another two-weeks

Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed this morning that Wayne Rooney will be out for at least another two-weeks with a knee injury.

Rooney got injured in training at Carrington on Christmas Day and the boss was hopeful that his recover time would be sooner than expected, but this morning Sir Alex confirmed that he will at least miss squad inclusion against West Ham and the league fixture visit of Liverpool.

Speaking with this morning, Sir Alex said:

“Wayne Rooney is still injured. I’m surprised, it’s been longer than we thought it would be.

He was meant to be back training but he’s not. It’s nothing serious but it looks like he’s going to be out for another two weeks or so.

Nani is expected to start training today, and Phil Jones is available against West Ham.

Everyone else is OK I think.

Rooney won’t be fit for Liverpool. I don’t think so. It’s nothing serious, he just got clipped behind his knee. Nothing shows in the scan but he’s still feeling it. Hopefully in two weeks it’ll be sorted but nonetheless it’s a loss.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
