Rooney has been out with a knee ligament injury since the middle of February and is set to return after England’s friendly matches against Germany and Holland.
The Manchester United and England captain expects to feature in United’s final run-in in the Premier League and any potential Europa League and FA Cup matches.
Rooney will also then have three warm up games with England at the end of May/beginning of June, so he is confident he will be ready and fit.
Rooney is quoted by The Sun:
I am hoping if I am back when I am expected to be back, depending on the two cups we are still in, then there could be 10 games left for United plus the England games so I don’t think that would be a worry.
It is going as planned. It is going how we first thought. It is going well so hopefully it won’t be too long now. I don’t know for definite but after the international break. Obviously I will miss the England games, but it shouldn’t be too long after that.
It is not too bad. We are being a bit cautious. It is a difficult one to try and push back. If I try and push and be involved now it could cause more damage. So we are being cautious.
