Rooney out with throat infection

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Wayne Rooney will miss Manchester United's Europa League clash with Ajax on Thursday after picking up a throat infection.

Rooney developed the problem following last week's first leg in Amsterdam and, although he reported for training on Wednesday, he was quickly sent home in the hope he will recover in time for Sunday's Barclays Premier League trip to Norwich.

"Wayne is out tomorrow," said Ferguson. "He has a really bad throat. There were traces of it in Amsterdam and we gave him some medication but it got worse."
