Sir Alex Ferguson speaks at a press conference at Carrington

Sir Alex Rules Out Rooney

Sir Alex Ferguson has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Liverpool, confirming that everybody who featured against Galatasaray is fit for the trip to Anfield.

Speaking at his weekly press conference at Carrington, the boss also gave an update on the fitness of Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young, who are both unavailable this weekend due to a gashed thigh and bruised cartilage respectively.

“Everybody is available who played on Wednesday,” Sir Alex told ManUtd.com. “I know there were reports on Rooney being available but that’s not the case. He’s not far away, he’s working hard and we just need to get him into football training now.

“It is bruised cartilage for Ashley Young, which will take a few weeks more. We will take our time with Young, he’ll be okay in two to three weeks’ time.”
