Roo suffers Heartbreak, but luckily not Ankle-Break !
Wayne Rooney is set to be out of action for two to four weeks, after the England International ace sprained his ankle in the dying seconds of United’s hurtful defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night. Rooney twisted his right foot after challenging for the ball, and now could miss up to seven games...

Wayne Rooney Ankle Sprain: The Sequence of Events !

Two minutes of stoppage time were added, as Bayern keeper Hans-Jörg Butt took his kick-out. Rooney challenged for the ball, but failed, instead he twisted his right foot (as seen in the above picture). Bayern played on into the box, and after some diabolical defending, Ivica Olic latched on to a loose ball and fired the Bavarians into the second leg, leading by a 2-1 scoreline. 

Roo had put The Reds ahead after just 64 seconds, but the Germans bit back, as Franck Ribery scored a deflected free-kick off Rooney himself. Sir Alex and United fans were still pretty happy with the away goal advantage, but then came the double blow; Bayern scored the winner, as 34-goal Wazza fell to the ground, injured !

Rooney will go for an MRI Scan tomorrow morning, to reveal the full extent of the injury, after the United squad returned from Munich on Wednesday evening. But the early diagnoses are that he has severally sprained his right ankle, and is facing 2 to 4 weeks on the sidelines. In that space he could potentially miss seven games, although he is expected to be back after four. He will, however, miss crunch games against Chelsea, on Saturday, the second leg with Bayern Munich next Wednesday, and the Premier League trips to Blackburn and Manchester City.

Roo might only be back in time for the Champions League Semi-Final 1st Leg (and that’s if United make it through), or the ace could return for the home game with Tottenham, but may even be doubtful for that. If the injury is very bad he could miss the 2nd Leg in Europe, with either Lyon or Bordeaux. He will most likely return for the two remaining League games with Sunderland and Stoke City.

The injury comes as a massive blow to Sir Alex, who has already had a fair share of injuries to deal with this season – such as Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Michael Owen and many more. Roo had sat-out the 4-0 hammering of Bolton over the weekend, to give the goal machine a deserved rest, but now that he is injured again, the gaffer will have to look elsewhere..

In Dimitar Berbatov, Federico Macheda and maybe even Mame Biram Diouf !

Thanks for keeping us updated.

Get well soon Rooney! We need you badly!

Munich has been a disaster for United over the history… We lost Busby babes there. More recently, VDS got injured in the Audi cup there. And now Rooney….

@Chelsey – you just keep on dreaming, then you always experience the nightmare, don’t you! You will still get a lashing at OT, I am sure of that!

Chelsey and Chelsea both can kiss my ass! See you at OT!
Stop worrying about United and thinking about how your season will be put to bed at OT!

P.S. Do you know where your wife/girl friend was all this time you read this article and replied to it? You sure she wasnt around your Captain-Leader-Legend John Terry? 😛
