Wayne Rooney Doubtful For Bolton Trip

Sports News - March 21, 2010
Wayne Rooney limped away from Old Trafford after United’s massive win against Liverpool over the weekend. He is set to be rested this weekend as Man United take on Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

Rooney has been suffering from an inflamed tendon ever since playing two matches at Wembley in a matter of days. Rooney had played an hour on the Wembley turf for United in the Carling Cup final, four days later he played 86 minutes for England in a friendly against Egypt. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson blamed the Wembley pitch for the injury.

It isn’t serious enough to stop him playing for United but it does swell up after matches. It had been believed that the injury would have cleared up within a month, but the problem doesn’t look like it is going away.

This could be massive injury news for both Manchester United and England. With United looking to win the Premier League title and Champions League title and England going to the Word Cup in the summer, this could be a nightmare for both teams.

The last thing Man United need now is our top scorer not being able to play during the vital run in. Not only that, England fans won’t want to see him out injured either.
