Rooney To Return At Last

Wayne Rooney will be back in the United squad for the game against Blackburn on Saturday and does have an outside chance of facing Fulham on Wednesday, Sir Alex revealed.

He limped off the field in the 6th minute of the game against Wigan at Old Trafford in the middle of January and it looked like he might be out for a while. His hamstring injury took a month to heal but he's finally getting ready to go.

'Wayne should be ready for Saturday's game against Blackburn, we`re quite confident of that, and he may have a slight chance of being fit for a place on the bench on Wednesday.'

Fergie added that Tevez has been rested with Wednesday's game against Fulham in mind. That certainly indicates that Rooney is unlikely to feature in that game but Fergie is capable of springing surprises on us: remember how we were told before the Wigan game last May that Rooney had only an outside chance of making the bench? Yet he started that game, played very well, won a penalty and produced a perfect pass for Giggs' clinching goal.

His return can't come soon enough though: in eight days' time we'll face Internazionale at the San Siro - Rooney will be needed in that cauldron.

AT LAST! I did wonder before the Derby game if it was going to be another Wigan and Rooney would play at least some part, despite Fergie saying he wouldn't. But no...Fergie was being straight for once. I hope Rooney comes back asap; I'm sure this not rushing back will be good in the long term (as he often rushed back perhaps with long-term effects before) but I just want to see him back. Our team is doing brilliantly, yes, but we still don't look the same team without Rooney
