Wayne Rooney: Clashed with Danny Welbeck in training

Wayne Rooney: Clashed with Danny Welbeck in training

That was the verdict of Manchester United manager David Moyes after Rooney's damaged shin kept him out of Wednesday's Champions League game at Shakhtar Donetsk.

A gashed forehead kept the striker out of England's recent World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.

And his omission from United's team-sheet in Ukraine raised fears he could miss this month's key games against Poland and Montenegro.

Moyes put those concerns to bed in the aftermath of a 1-1 draw, saying: "It's not that serious. He took a clash of shins with Danny Welbeck and it's just swollen up."

Asked whether Rooney would be fit for Saturday's trip to Sunderland, the Scot said: "I hope so."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
