Gutted to be out for a while but my leg will be ok which is the main thing http://t.co/98yTtndc In a message alongside the picture he wrote: "Thanks for all the messages of support. Gutted to be out for a while but my leg will be ok which is the main thing." Rooney's t-shirt features the Latin saying Virescit Vulnere Virtus, translated as "Courage becomes greater through a wound."
