No quick return for Rooney

Published Add your comment

Wayne Rooney's hopes of a quick comeback from the nasty wound he sustained during Manchester United's 3-2 win over Fulham on Saturday look certain to be dashed.

Rooney remained in hospital overnight as medical staff assessed the extent of the injury he sustained when Hugo Rodallega landed on him in stoppage time.

Immediately after the game, Sir Alex Ferguson said it was "a very bad one" which would rule his forward out for four weeks. This has been emphasised by the reaction of surgeons who were "surprised" at the depth of the cut.
