Roo became ill following last week’s 2-0 defeat of Ajax in the first leg of the Europa League last-32 match in Amsterdam and was sent home.

Man United boss Alex Ferguson says Rooney “has a really bad throat. There were traces of it in Amsterdam and we gave him some medication but it got worse. He has been in bed over the weekend.”

United has an upcoming Premier League match against Norwich, and Ferguson says “we are trying hard to get him right for Sunday.”

The current Premier League champions are only two points behind Manchester City in the Premiership title race.

Sir Alex Ferguson says that a tie between United and rivals Man City would make “a great final” for the Europa League.

“Ourselves and City didn’t expect to be where we are today,” said Fergie.

“Both of us will be trying to win it and it would be a great final, that.”
