Man United manager Louis van Gaal has hinted that he has no idea on how long Wayne Rooney’s knee injury will last.
Wayne Rooney was dropped out of Man United’s squad to face Midtjylland on Thursday and our sources say the England captain picked up a knee problem in Saturday’s 2-1 lost away to Sunderland and could miss at least two months on the sidelines.
Boss Louis van Gaal expressed worry on Rooney’s injury during a Press Conference build up to the game in Denmark.
“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.”
“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.”
Wayne has been one of the influential players under Van Gaal and has managed 14 goals in 32 outings in all competitions for United this season.
The injury to Wayne Rooney will pave the way for United youngsters like Memphis Depay and Adnan Januzaj to have an extended run in the squad.
Both Depay and Januzaj are highly rated by Manchester United coaches, but failed to live up to the expectations at Old Traffod so far this season.
