Ferdinand and Rooney's Euro boost

28 March 2010 02:24
England stars Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand are set to return for United's Champions League trip to Bayern Munich. The pair missed Saturday's victory over Bolton with a bruised heel and a groin injury respectively. Sir Alex Ferguson shuffled his pack bringing in Dimitar Berbatov and Jonny Evans and the decision paid off with the Reds easing to a 4-0 win. They were just a bit tender, said the United boss. Wayne has a bit of bruising in his foot. If he had played and got a whack on it he would have been doubtful for Tuesday. We have a big week. We have to use our squad in situations like this. I have no qualms about that at all. They have all done their job well and I will have Rooney and Ferdinand available for Tuesday. Meanwhile, Bayern  slumped to a second successive defeat in the Bundesliga - losing 2-1 at home to Stuttgart. Bayern coach Louis van Gaal left wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben on the bench with an eye on Tuesday's Champions League match against United. But both were drafted into action early in the second half as Bayern tried to scramble a result.
