ROONEY Ruled Out For Six Weeks, This Means He Will Miss ARSENAL Game

Wayne Rooney’s knee injury will keep him out for the next six weeks, according to Sky sources. The Manchester United captain was left behind when the rest of the squad travelled for
Thursday’s Europa League game at FC Midtjylland after suffering ligament damage at Sunderland on Saturday. And while Louis van Gaal would not confirm a timeframe for Rooney’s recovery at his press conference in Denmark, it is understood United will be without their top scorer until the end of March. The United boss told MUTV : “He has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. He scores a lot of goals so he is very important for us. We know that but we have to cope with that.”
Pressed by reporters to put a time on Rooney’s recovery, he said: “It’s difficult to say, but he’s injured in the game versus Sunderland and has a knee problem. We have to wait and see how long that takes. I cannot say.” A six-week absence would see Rooney miss Premier League games against Arsenal and Manchester City, among others, and a potential FA Cup quarter-final. It would also rule him out of two full Europa League rounds and in all likelihood deprive Roy Hodgson of his skipper for England’s friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands on March 26 and 29.
