Wayne Rooney is being treated in hospital after suffering a nasty leg injury in Manchester United's Premier League match with Fulham.

The England striker was carried off on a stretcher at Old Trafford field after the accidental clash with Hugo Rodallega in the home side's 3-2 victory and is expected to be out of action for four weeks.

Rooney was charging down a shot by the Fulham substitute, whose boot connected with the England striker's leg.

Television pictures showed a severe gash down Rooney's right leg, with blood coming from the deep wound, and United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "It was a very bad one.

"He has gone to hospital. It looks like he will be out for four weeks."
