Rooney absent from training

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney was the only significant absentee from the open portion of training ahead of Manchester United's Europa League last-32 decider against Ajax at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

There has been no suggestion of an injury to Rooney, although with an important Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich looming on Sunday, manager Sir Alex Ferguson will not want to take any chances with his star man.

The remainder of United's first-team squad were present, including midfielder Anderson, who has been missing recently.
