Don’t freak out everyone, but Rooney MIGHT be injured
Is this your worst nightmare?
If The Spoiler were in charge, from now until June, Wayne Rooney would be forced at to live in a marshmallow house on a street made of matresses, and if he was ordered to play any more Man United matches, he’d do so from inside one of those massive see-through hamster balls that they used to have on Gladiators.
England simply can’t afford to be without him in South Africa.
Hence, it’s with trembling typing fingers that news has come in, and now gone out again, that the planet’s second best player is having all kinds of problems, thanks to a dodgy knee.
As reported in today’s Independent:
Rooney was limping heavily as he walked around the Old Trafford touchline an hour after Sunday’s match had finished and though he did not need medical treatment on Monday, he missed training sessions on Tuesday and yesterday and seems unlikely to play for United at Bolton on Saturday lunchtime.
The ultimate worry for Fabio Capello is an injury to Rooney.
Is it time to rest him? Yeah, get Ferguson to rest him. That’s all he needs, a bit of rest. He’ll be fine after some rest.
Do NOT freak out.
