Gallery: Wayne Rooney returns to Manchester United training

by Sam Peoples

Wayne Rooney returned to Manchester United training this week and stepped up his recovery from a knee ligament injury he sustained in February.

Taking part in full training, Rooney is now a step closer to returning for Man United’s first-team but Louis van Gaal wants him to play with the U21s on Monday night in order to improve his match fitness, which indicates he isn’t quite ready.

With Rooney coming back from injury as well as Ashley Young and Phil Jones, van Gaal is heading into the last eight games of the season with an almost fully fit squad.

With a top four spot still up for grabs as well as an FA Cup semi-final date at Wembley if we can come overcome West Ham next week, United’s season isn’t over just yet and having genuine options on the bench should hopefully help us.

Great to be back training with the lads ?
