BREAKING – Rooney sent to hospital for scan after suffering training injury

by Sam Peoples

Wayne Rooney has been sent to hospital this evening for a scan after suffering an injury in Manchester United’s training session, The Telegraph has reported.

With the World Cup just around the corner, there are clearly going to be fears that Rooney could be out of the tournament.

There is no news on the severity of the injury but it may have something to do with the fact that Ryan Giggs introduced double training sessions for the team today.

The reality is that any sort of injury is bad news for Rooney because more than most players, he needs regular football to maintain his match fitness otherwise he loses his sharpness very quickly.

Giggs will more than likely reveal some more information about Rooney in his Sunderland pre-match press conference tomorrow morning.

Update – Contrasting reports now suggest Rooney missed training altogether through a stomach bug.
