Rooney Out For Two Months

Rooney Out For Two Months

United's 21-year-old talisman will miss two months due to the hairline fracture in his left foot.

Rooney has sustained the injury against Reading on Sunday and the first reports were talking about a 4-6 week absence. However, the situation is more serious than that.

'It will be two months out,' said Sir Alex. 'To be on the safe side, we would say it is going to be two months, but hopefully he can come back quicker.'

Well, it looks good, doesn't it? Next games are Portsmouth (away), City (a) and Spurs (home). We could not beat Reading, arguably the easiest fixture of the opening five and now we've lost Wayne Rooney, hitherto the only fully fit striker we had.

Nike should really examine their boots - the frequency with which Rooney suffers foot fracture is pretty alarming.

chin up lads, its only the first game, you say reading is the easiest but statistics show they are one of our toughest opponesnts, scoring moe than anyone against us last season, and also i would be suprised to see those tactics reading used from pompey at home, the new-look city side and a spurs side who's best strenth is attack. weve got tevez and i know rooneys injury is a mssive blow, but i am more that confidnt that with tevez, giggs, anderson, saha and possily solskjaer returning to fitness we can cope the 2 months wazza will be out. remember guys, were still the champions of england!!!!!! C'MON UTD!!!!!!!

You're right of course but it's still a sucker punch. Saha and Ole are desperately short of match fitness and Tevez is not ready either - with difficult games coming up, it will be a tough period. Roo won't play against Chelsea - without him that will be bloody hard.

rooney probably won't play against chelsea, but Tevez will be ready by then, so it shouldn't be too bad. just push scholes up and play Hargreaves and Carrick together.

Can't say I'm genuinely upset b/c he's a great player and it improves our chances. But I wouldn't wish that on anyone, especially as it happened to us last yr with henry and RVP. At least you have good cover in Tevez, something we didn't have. looking forward to a tuf battle this year, and hoping we can stay injury free. Hope Rooney recovers, but not too quickly, if you'll forgive me that!!

HereĀ“s to a speedy recovery for him, hate to see players pick up injuries, specially in the begining of the season.
