Rooney makes training return

09 Mar 2010 - 11:36:59

Manchester United have been handed a major boost ahead of Wednesday's Champions League last-16 second leg clash with AC Milan after Wayne Rooney was able to take part in training on Tuesday morning.

The 24-year-old former Everton player had to sit out Saturday's 1-0 win against Wolves and was expected to miss the Rossoneri encounter.

Sir Alex Ferguson had blamed Rooney's absence on the striker's desire to carry on playing after he starred in United's 2-1 Carling Cup final victory over Aston Villa before playing for the full 90 minutes as England beat Egypt in a friendly international.

However, there are fears that Wes Brown sustained a suspected broken metatarsal during the victory at Molineux.

Anderson (knee), Ryan Giggs (arm) and John O'Shea (leg) remain on the sidelines while Jonny Evans missed the Wolves game.

Ferguson had said on Monday: "Rooney is very doubtful for the Milan game unfortunately. It's one of these bad bits of luck you get - the Wembley pitch has just killed him.

"I was pleased with how (Dimitar) Berbatov did against Wolves though and I'll probably start with him on Wednesday."

United won last month's first leg at the San Siro 3-2.
