Wayne Rooney suffers fresh injury scare

Published Add your comment

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has given his team a fresh injury scare after limping out of training.

According to the Daily Mail, the United forward is set to have a scan after he was forced to leave training early having suffered a setback.

The news will also be worrying for England boss Roy Hodgson, with Rooney set to play a central role in his country's World Cup hopes this summer.

Rooney picked up the injury in the Champions League against Bayern Munich last month, although he took a pain killing injection to get through the second leg. It's believed he suffered a chipped bone in his foot, and he may have aggravated the problem this week.

United have sent Rooney for a scan and will wait for the results before making a decision on whether to risk him against Sunderland at Old Trafford this weekend.

The 28-year-old forward scored two goals in Ryan Giggs's first game in charge as interim United boss last week, as United beat Norwich City 4-0 at home.

But, already out of contention for the Champions League qualification places, Giggs may not feel the need to risk Rooney against the Black Cats if there's a chance he could make the problem worse.

Hodgson is set to name his 23-man squad for the World Cup after the last Premier League match of the season. The date for the squad announcement is the 12th May.
