Rooney Out for Four Weeks

Following the cut to his thigh, Sir Alex Ferguson has announced that Manchester United expect Wayne Rooney to be out for up to four weeks.

The cut, a nasty looking one that had Danny Welbeck turning away in horror, was caused, quite innocently, by the boot of Hugo Rodallega.

As well as missing the United games, Rooney will not, to Roy Hodgson`s great disappointment, be available for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers England have lined up.

We wish him a speedy recovery.

Press now reporting it could be up to 8 weeks. Hardly surprising given the severity of the injury. Do you think Van persie can lead the line for two whole months without getting injured?

Like I said in the previous article, this is the first time in a long time in which us united fans don't have to feel overly aggrieved about the news of Rooney being injured. Kagawa and Van Persie are more than capable of ensuring we don't miss Rooney and, as I said before also, they might even force Rooney into playing in a deeper more central midfield role rather than playing as a center forward. I know it's not his preferred position but his passing range, engine and aggressiveness are wasted in the advanced role he likes and, to me anyway, he possesses all what we lack in midfield; goals, work rate, aggressiveness and great passing range and technique.

Hope he's fit again soon but fear it could be a while that was a good sized chunk removed. Like famous says though we're in a good way for forwards at the moment better than defenders or quality midfielders.
