David Moyes has confirmed that Wayne Rooney will miss the game tomorrow due to an ongoing groin problem, and the 28-year old has been sent to America in a bid to have his star man back for the Chelsea game. It is thought that America’s warm weather will speed up Rooney’s recovery, and hopefully he’ll be back next week.
David Moyes said:
“Well, with Wayne we’ve sent him away on a hot-weather break. His groin isn’t quite recovered yet so we’ve sent the fitness coach with him and he’s away with his family. It will give Wayne a bit of break. ”
“We always hoped to be able to do it at some time in the season and the groin is not as good as we’d hoped. Hopefully we can get him fit for Chelsea but we’ll see how he is. He’s away and will do some work with the fitness coach.
Robin van Persie is also still missing, and the worrying thing is that David Moyes didn’t seem confident about getting Van Persie back fit anytime soon.
“Robin is going to be a little while. We’ll do everything we can to get him back quickly. Wayne has got an injury and we have to hope for that, but we’ll see how it goes. It’s probably the right time to give it a chance to heal. We thought the best thing was to get to the warmer weather with one of the coaches and spend time with the family as well and it will make him better.”
One things for sure, Danny Welbeck is going to have to continue his good form for a little while yet.
