PICTURE: Man Utd’s Rooney and Van Persie back in training


Manchester United fans can breath a sigh of relief. Both Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney have been pictured taking part in full training today, with the strikers set to return to first team action.

Wayne Rooney has been out since the beginning of the month with a groin problem, while Van Persie has only played one Premier League game since the start of November, having struggled with a problematic thigh injury.

Van Persie could make a return next Tuesday in the Premier League against Cardiff, while the Daily Mirror claims that Rooney will play in tonight’s League Cup semi-final second leg against Sunderland.

  1. Both Rooney and Robin van persie can fire united to top four finish on one condition.only if both of them stay fit from now till the end of the season.But United still need to sign one or two players in the January transfer market if they can get player mata yohan cabaye to add some creativeness to their midfield.
