Rooney Has Minor Ligament Damage

Rooney Has Minor Ligament Damage

Wayne Rooney has minor ligament damage, the club confirmed. However, it is still unclear how long he will be out of action - Sir Alex Ferguson will disclose that in his press conference on Friday.

Sky Sports News happen to believe Rooney will be out for 2-4 weeks which looks a fair prognosis considering there's no fracture or tear but merely a little damage. However, nothing is certain apart from the fact that Rooney is not only doubtful for Saturday as Fergie said after the Bayern game but he's certainly out of that and of the CL quarter-final second leg as well.

It is a massive blow but what can we do? At least the team will be even more focused, hopefully - after all, there's no Rooney to bail us out so everyone will have to raise their game. A two-week absence would mean Rooney missing three games: Chelsea, Bayern, Blackburn. He could be rushed back for the away game at Manchester City although rushing players back from injury can be a very bad idea, see Fabregas and Gallas yesterday...

We'll see. At the moment, we have to place our trust in Berbatov. He scored 8 goals in his last 9 league starts, chaps, so it's far from doom and gloom.

Fabregas broke his leg. I doubt he had a broken fibula before the match, so how did we rush him back?

Not ideal but we really should be able to cope. If berba can stay in the box long enough to recieve a cross or some of our wingers show some comosure on the end of berbas passes we should be fine.

i don't think berbatov will win the ariel battle against alex/jt as compared to rooney , both are better suited against this sort of game plan

@adrogbafan , True mate . But JT is very lousy ball player. He can be easily beaten on the ground. Carvalho deals with that . His absence is an advantage. JT is having a rough year. I believe that Berba will shine. Everyone of us will get behind him. Our team rests on him for the goals. He has able shoulders to carry us.
