Rooney in line for shock Man U comeback after suffering horrendous thigh injury

London, Sep 19(ANI): Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is back in full training earlier than expected after suffering a horrendous gash on his thigh from Fulham’s Hugo Rodallega’s boots during their match at Old Trafford.

Rooney was expected to be out for two months after suffering the injury, but now there are slight chances he could be included in the United squad that faces Galatasaray on Wednesday during their opening group stage game of the Champions League.

According to the Sun, the England star will almost certainly be available for Sunday’s showstopper with Liverpool at Anfield.

Rooney, who is wearing light strapping to avoid infection, took his first steps towards a comeback last week with a light outdoor session and gym work.

But yesterday’s session was a giant stride forwards and gave United a massive boost ahead of their trip to Merseyside. (ANI)
