ROONEY A MAJOR DOUBT FOR MAN UTD'S TRIP TO PSV




The England captain missed Saturday's win over
Liverpool with a hamstring injury and is more likely
to be fit to face Southampton according to Louis van
Gaal.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is a major
doubt for his side's Champions League clash
against PSV Eindhoven.

The forward missed Saturday's 3-1 win over
Liverpool after suffering a hamstring injury in
training, and manager Louis van Gaal admits it is
unlikely his captain will make the trip to the
Netherlands.

The former Barcelona coach is more confident
Rooney will be fit to take on Southampton on
September 20 in their next domestic outing.

"He is injured so we have to take care of him," he
told MUTV. "I think he is very important for us and I
don’t to take any risks so that’s why he doesn’t play
[against Liverpool].

"I don’t think he will play against PSV Eindhoven,
but maybe he shall play at Southampton. We have to
wait and see if he can play against PSV because we
still have three days to go."

United's clash with the Eredivisie champions marks
their return to Champions League group stages
having missed out last season, with Rooney's hat-
trick against Club Brugge helping them through the
play-off round.
