WAYNE ROONEY TARGETS COMEBACK FROM INJURY AFTER EASTER

The Manchester United Captain will miss his side’s upcoming clashes against Liverpool and Manchester City, plus the England's internationals with Germany and Netherlands.

Rooney is making great strides in his recovery and is optimistic of his return in time for the last stretch of his sides’ fight for a top Premier League and placement in next season’s Champions League tournament.  

Roo suffered a knee injury away at Sunderland on February 13 and is taking a break from competition to speed up his rehabilitation. 

"Everything is going as planned," said Rooney. "Rehab is going well but, hopefully, it won't be too long.”

"I don't know when I will return. Obviously, I will miss the international games but, hopefully, it won't be too long. It's not too bad but obviously it's just being a bit cautious. It's difficult to push back. If I tried to push it to be involved now, it could cause more damage. So, being cautious, after the international break is more realistic.”

"I am hoping that, if I am back when I am expected to be back, depending on the two cups we are in, then there could be over 10 games left plus the England games.

"I was saying before it has been eight games that I have missed. I didn't realise it was that many so it's obviously really frustrating. Myself, the manager and the doctor felt it was best for me to get a bit of rest and that is why I went away. That will do me good in the coming weeks."
