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

Rooney Warned Not To Hurry

His World Cup doctor urged Wayne Rooney not to come back too soon from his metatarsal injury.

The striker suffered a metatarsal fracture on the opening day fixture against Reading, the third such injury in his career. The doctor who led his rehabilitation before last year's World Cup conceded that Rooney is extremely unlucky but also warned him to be cautious.

'Wayne is a fit, young lad very, very keen to return as he lives to play football. But players must be held back to stop themselves causing more damage. If you come back too early, there's a risk of re-fracturing and having a setback,' he said.

'Full-blooded and combative players are more likely to get injured but Wayne's been very unlucky to have three.'

However, it seems that nothing will deter Rooney and Fergie to get the striker back for the Everton game. Maybe not a starter (surely not, if I come to think about it) but I expect him to be on the bench. That would be an astonishingly quick recovery, having missed only five weeks. It's quite understandable that the doctors warn him.

I'm not sure if we need to bring him back so quickly though I admit I dread to face Chelsea without Rooney at least on the bench. But Sir Alex is not the man to hurry back players into action prematurely (just take Saha for example) so I think we should trust him.

Yeah you wouldn't want him out all season even if the rest of the PL does.
