Wayne Rooney in contention to face Everton

Published Add your comment

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has been passed fit to take on former side Everton this weekend.

The Daily Mail believe the England international will be in contention to face the Toffees at Goodison Park this weekend despite struggling with a toe injury.

Rooney played the full 90 minutes against Bayern Munich in the Champions League despite the fact he - according to David Moyes - was unable to strike a ball cleanly.

Moyes' gamble on Rooney's fitness backfired as the 28-year-old failed to make any real positive impression on the Champions League quarter-final tie.

However he is now believed to have recovered from a chipped bone in his foot to hand both Manchester United and England a major fitness boost.

Rooney is expected to play some part in Manchester United's last five games before joining up with the England squad ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The former Everton striker is sure to get a frosty reception on Sunday if he is chosen to take on Roberto Martinez's side - along with fellow Toffees old boys Phil Neville, Marouane Fellaini and Moyes.
