Ferguson happy for Rooney to face Sweden

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has no issues with Wayne Rooney being selected for England's friendly in Sweden next month.

With the game falling in a midweek between two Champions League fixtures, and other big Premier League games to come as well, Ferguson could be forgiven for hoping Rooney is excused international duty.

However, the United boss feels Rooney could actually benefit from the experience, and said: "That is not a problem for him. Wayne needs to play all the time. Sometimes we might put him on the bench but in the main he likes to play. If he has shown that keenness I don't see why he shouldn't."
