Rooney out of United-Valencia match

Manchester United says Wayne Rooney will miss Wednesday’s

Champions League game against Valencia because of an ankle

injury.

The England striker was substituted in the 61st minute of

United’s 2-2 draw at Bolton on Sunday and the Premier League club

says he will not be part of the squad that flies to Spain on

Tuesday.

United said on its website Monday that even though Rooney’s

injury is ”not thought to be serious,” he will miss the game

against the Spanish leaders.

United drew 0-0 with Rangers in its opening Group C match. It is

already without injured wingers Ryan Giggs and Antonio

Valencia.
