Fergie: United must "wait and see" on Rooney blow

Sir Alex Ferguson has said Manchester United will be forced to "wait and see" regarding the severity of an ankle injury sustained by Wayne Rooney on Tuesday night.

Rooney appeared to turn over on his right ankle in the build-up to Bayern Munich's injury-time goal which gave the German side a 2-1 victory in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Rooney has been in consistently destructive form in recent months, and scored his 34th goal of the season inside 64 seconds at the Allianz Arena, so news of a fitness concern is a real worry for United and England.

The striker, who left the stadium on crutches and with a protective boot in place, had to be helped from the pitch after going down in pain and Ferguson is unsure whether Rooney will be fit to play in a critical match against title rivals Chelsea at the weekend.

"He's obviously hurt his ankle," he said. "We'll know better tomorrow. It's too early to say. I don't think it's terribly serious, but we'll wait and see."

Asked if he could feature against Chelsea on Saturday, Ferguson added: "I can't answer that, we need to wait until tomorrow."
