Wayne Rooney will return for Manchester United on Monday with Sir Alex Ferguson convinced his young striker can pick up the same free-scoring form he was in before suffering a freak ankle injury in training.

Rooney had scored nine goals in nine games for club and country before he fell awkwardly during a head-tennis session 24 hours before the Premier League win over Blackburn three weeks ago, but Ferguson is confident Rooney´s return will trigger an immediate improvement in league form for the Red Devils, with the 22-year-old primed for action against Fulham at Old Trafford.

"Wayne has been training with the first team and has a few extra days to prepare, so I think he will be ready," said Ferguson. "He won´t need any encouragement to play that is for sure."
