'Minor' ligament damage for Rooney
Published 01/04/2010 | 12:28
Manchester United have confirmed Wayne Rooney suffered only "minor" ankle ligament damage in the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Rooney had a scan yesterday afternoon, immediately after returning to the UK.
There is no break, which means Rooney's presence at this summer's World Cup should not be threatened.
Confirmation of ligament damage does however indicate the United striker will be out of action for an extended period, starting with Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea, although the Old Trafford outfit have not said how long Rooney is expected to take to recover.
