'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rest For Rooney (Finally)

Rooney could have a few days off next week as he can't be included in the squad that takes on Reading next Saturday.

'Wayne will get a rest next week because he can't play against Reading, so maybe we will give him a few days off,' confirmed Ferguson.

I am one of those who are constantly worried about overworking Rooney. I do exaggerate of course but he played in almost every game when he was fit since joining United in 2004, and he's still only 21.

All football fans could mention memorable examples of players with outrageous talents who burnt out very soon because they were overburdened.

I told myself that Sir Alex knew what he was doing but I'm still very happy that our talismanic striker could get some rest. Hopefully he'll come back refreshed, shrugging off his bad spell finally to destroy Lille.
