Published Add your comment

Manchester Untied boss Sir Alex Ferguson has played down fears over the fitness of his star striker, Wayne Rooney.

The 24-year-old failed to fire during England's ill-fated World Cup campaign, sparking suggestions he may have been carrying an injury.

But Ferguson is quoted in The Mail on Sunday as saying: "There is nothing wrong with the lad or his fitness."

He added: "He's relaxing on holiday in Barbados and I expect him to come back refreshed for the new season."
