Wayne Rooney: Trained on Tuesday

Wayne Rooney: Trained on Tuesday

The England forward is United's main fitness concern ahead of the potentially season-defining clash at the Allianz Arena after missing Saturday's win at Newcastle with a foot injury.

Rooney was involved as the United squad underwent a light work-out in a session partly open to media at their Aon Training Complex before flying out to Germany.

United fought out a 1-1 draw with Bayern in the home leg at Old Trafford.

At Bayern's pre-match press conference in Munich manager Pep Guardiola was in no doubt that Rooney would line up for the Reds on Wednesday night.

He said: "Rooney is going to play, 100 per cent. He is going to play, I bet you a big big glass of beer."

Guardiola described Rooney as "a big player, one of the best I have seen in my career".

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
