Manchester United and England striker, Wayne Rooney, has revealed that he expects to be back playing football by the end of September.
The 26-year-old has been sidelined for a couple of weeks now since he suffered a nasty looking gash in a match against Fulham. After the match Sir Alex Ferguson said that he expected Wayne to be out for a month minimum, however it seems that Roonney is ready to make an early return to action.
Rooney told the Manchester Evening News: ‘The injury is going well. It could have been a lot worse than what it was. It is up to the doctor. When he declares me fit I will be ready. ‘It feels good at the minute. The timescale put on it was four weeks. If that is the time they feel I need for the wound to heal properly then that is what I will do.
He added: ‘Overall, I think at the most I will miss four games.’
Wayne Rooney has also recently been speaking to Sky Sports News about the launch of his new book and has revealed to them that he plans on staying at Manchester United for the rest of his career. The England international had handed in a written transfer request to the club back in 2010, but he has now said that that was the worst mistake of his life and he was going through a rough patch with personal life and injuries.
When asked if he would stay at Old Trafford for ever, he replied: “I hope so. I want to be successful here, I want to still be playing here in the next 10 years and be successful.
