ROONEY A MAJOR DOUBT FOR MAN UTD'S TRIP TO PSV

By 09:32 Sun, 13 Sep 2015 Comments


The England captain missed Saturday's win over

Liverpool with a hamstring injury and is more likely

to be fit to face Southampton according to Louis van

Gaal.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is a major

doubt for his side's Champions League clash

against PSV Eindhoven.

The forward missed Saturday's 3-1 win over

Liverpool after suffering a hamstring injury in

training, and manager Louis van Gaal admits it is

unlikely his captain will make the trip to the

Netherlands.

The former Barcelona coach is more confident

Rooney will be fit to take on Southampton on

September 20 in their next domestic outing.

"He is injured so we have to take care of him," he

told MUTV. "I think he is very important for us and I

don’t to take any risks so that’s why he doesn’t play

[against Liverpool].

"I don’t think he will play against PSV Eindhoven,

but maybe he shall play at Southampton. We have to

wait and see if he can play against PSV because we

still have three days to go."

United's clash with the Eredivisie champions marks

their return to Champions League group stages

having missed out last season, with Rooney's hat-

trick against Club Brugge helping them through the

play-off round.
