Manchester United Football Club have had a whole host of injuries decimating the first-team squad at times this season, with Louis van Gaal having limited options. One man who should be back soon however is Wayne Rooney, and it comes from Jesse Lingard.
The in-form winger was speaking to the media about United, and he was asked when his captain was set to return.
“Wayne Rooney should be back after the international break.” Lingard began. “We have a lot of players coming back. That’s a massive boost for the squad.”
This is fantastic news, and it gives Rooney some time to get training under his belt during the fortnight international break. It certainly won’t be easy for him to get back into the team though, as the lads who are currently in the starting line-up will be fighting for their place and won’t give it up lightly.
