Rooney faces 4 weeks out with injury
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson said Wayne Rooney could
be out for a month after sustaining a deep gash to his right leg
Saturday in the 3-2 win against Fulham.
Rooney was carried off the pitch on a stretcher in injury time
after getting caught by Hugo Rodallega.
”He’s got a bad one. He’s gone to hospital,” Ferguson said.
”It looks as he’ll be out for maybe four weeks.”
”I don’t know what happened. I think the player must have
followed through after he shot.”
The injury is likely to keep Rooney out of England’s first two
World Cup qualifiers against Moldova on Sept. 7 and Ukraine on
He will also likely miss the beginning of United’s Champions
League campaign and potentially the away game against Liverpool in
the Premier League on Sept. 23.
