Wayne Rooney could make an appearance for the first time in over a month, the 25 year-old has returned to Old Trafford following an intensive week of training in Beaverton, Oregon in the US, or more specifically Nike World, the company’s global head quarters.
But Sir Alex is concerned there was little football in his training, this is what he had to say “Wayne’s done a week of intense (fitness) work so he’s not done a lot of football work,”
“We need to assess that a little more closely. He could make the bench but I don’t think he’ll start.”
But how will the once beloved striker be received at Old Trafford? Will you be cheering him on or booing him off?
Ferdinand and Smalling both picked up groin strains while on international duty and will be assessed.
While Rafael and Nani remain doubtful for Wigan, Giggs is definitely out and will not be rushed back into action any time soon.
