Sir Alex Ferguson believes Wayne Rooney will be ready to play in Manchester United´s Champions League tie away to Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday.
The England forward was not risked against his former club when United beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park with a late goal from Nemanja Vidic.
But Ferguson said: "He will be fit for Wednesday, we have taken medical advice and he only started training on Monday. And after only five days he is a bit short of fitness, he trained (on Saturday) and will train again on Sunday and through until Wednesday."
