Rooney injury blow for Man Utd

Rooney injury blow for Man Utd

Man Utd forward Wayne Rooney did not take part in the yesterday’s Premier League Man Utd’s 4-3 win over Newcastle as he picked up an injury during the training session.

Man Utd coach Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Rooney will miss the festive fixtures. “It was a volley towards the end of training,” said Ferguson. “He did a ligament at the back of his knee and could be out for two to three weeks,” revealed Fergie.

Ferguson hopes that defender Phil Jones and winger Ashley Young will be back in action following rapid recovering from the minor injuries suffered during the game against Swansea. Fergie has decided to bench Nemanja Vidić for a match against Newcastle as he did not want to risk the injury setback. However Vidić is likely to feature in the Saturday’s Man Utd game against West Brom.
