Rooney Could Return Soon

Rooney Could Return Soon

Wayne Rooney could be back on the pitch in three weeks' time, according to Sir Alex Ferguson who is looking for a permanent solution to Rooney's returning fractures.

The 21-year-old striker suffered a hairline fracture in the first half of the opening day fixture against Reading. He was predicted to miss two months at least but, as he had done in 2006, he will defy the medical opinions.

'Wayne is jogging. He's doing fine,' Fergie confirmed.

'I am quite positive he will be back in three weeks.

Yet another sensational recovery may not make us forget that almost every year he breaks one of his feet. That's something that should be investigated, and that's what Fergie and Nike will do.

'We are looking at his running style, his power and the way his foot comes down heavily on the ground.

'It is something we have to analyse to make sure we have all the right solutions.

'I have spoken to Nike. They have been very efficient and don't want one of their best clients and our best player out on the sidelines every year with a cracked bone.'


That's good, for I find it unbelievable that the man who did not have a single muscle injury since joining United (or so it seems to me) broke his feet three times in the last three years.

Otherwise, having Rooney back in three weeks' time is indeed superb. That means he could be involved on the bench against Chelsea, and if things go really wrong, we'll still have an ace to play in Wayne Rooney.

good to hear he coming back sooner rather than later but maybe sir alex is rushing him back if he signed a new out and out striker it would take the pressure off,and bring the best out of tevez he has money(heinze,smith,rossi)so 8 million on anelka or gudjonson would be money well spent

I don't want Anelka, Gudjohnsen's wage demands are too high and he's NOT an out and out striker. I'm happy with Tevez, Saha, Rooney, Anderson, Nani, Ronaldo and Giggs as the attacking force, hopefully we'll have all of them fit and available soon. I agree that Rooney should not be rushed back.

tevez likes to come from deep,saha is injury prone,rooney is rooney!anderson is attacking midfielder and not yet tasted prem action,nani will take time(which we dont have now cos of bad start)giggs is getting on in years and ronaldo cant do it all on his own hope im wrong and will be first to admit if i am but i think we could regret not gettin a striker in(rossi,smith,ole,now gone)
