Pictures and video: Rooney injury



Wayne Rooney will have an MRI scan on his injured right ankle today after his Manchester United team lands back in England today. The 34-goal striker badly twisted the ankle in the build up to Bayern Munich’s second goal in the Allianz Arena last night. United fear ankle ligament damage, which will keep the player on the sidelines for more than a month.

    As a Gooner I wish him a speedy recovery. Bit of an awkward landing on the old right peg.
