Rooney injury doubt for Man Utd ahead of Bayern return

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is a major doubt for Wednesday’s Champions League second leg clash with Bayern Munich after picking up a toe injury, reports the Guardian.

Rooney is definitely out of Man Utd’s Premier League visit to Newcastle United on Saturday, while on Monday he will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the injury. The England international, who played the full 90 minutes of the 1-1 first leg draw on Tuesday, is rated as ‘touch and go’.


Manager David Moyes said of the problem: "Wayne is injured. He has a badly bruised toe so he won't be involved [against Newcastle]. It will be touch and go for Wayne for Wednesday. With a lot of toe injuries you have to make sure there isn't a hairline fracture or crack in your toe. We will have all that checked.


"It is a toe injury and they are never easy when you get one. You could see him limping in the game towards the end quite badly. There is not an awful lot you can do with a toe injury - sometimes you can feel better quite quickly with them and sometimes you need an injection possibly to play with it if it is bruising."


Should Rooney be absent, Danny Welbeck would be expected to play again, after starting the first leg in the absence of fellow striker Robin van Persie, who is out until at least the end of April. Man Utd also have concerns over the fitness of Jonathan Evans, Ryan Giggs and Chris Smalling.
