Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Wayne Rooney will be fit for the Champions League final with Chelsea on May 21 even if he does not make Sunday´s title crunch at Wigan.

Rooney has missed two games, including the victory over Barcelona, after suffering a recurrence of a hip injury in the defeat at Chelsea last month.

"I am not so sure about Wayne," said Ferguson. "Maybe I will have him as a substitute on Sunday. But he will certainly be fit for the Champions League final."
