Manchester United have been without their club captain for the last couple of months, due to an ongoing knee problem that has kept him out of action for both club and country. However today pictures of him back in first-team training have been released, and its excellent to see him back involved.
Louis van Gaal also confirmed that Wayne Rooney will not play this weekend as he needs some match fitness before he can compete at the highest level; So he’ll feature for the U21s this coming Monday.
If all goes well, we could well see him back in the starting XI in just over a week or so, which would be a massive morale boost for the whole team going into the business end of a tough Premier League campaign.
Check out the picture of Wayne Rooney back in training this afternoon:
