The Red Devils will err on the side of caution as Roo edges his way back from injury...

The News of the World claims that Manchester United have become deeply concerned with the length of Wayne Rooney's ongoing recovery from a hamstring problem.

The England forward was initially expected to miss three weeks after he was forced from the field early in the Premier League giants' win over Wigan Athletic on January 14.

However, the 23-year-old could now sit on the sidelines until the end of February, as Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't want to risk bringing back his star striker too early.

The timing could hardly be worse for United, who are already decimated by injuries. Owen Hargreaves is out for the season, while Rafael, Nani, Anderson, Jonny Evans, Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown, Patrice Evra and Park Ji-Sung are carrying various knocks and strains.

Carlos Tevez could benefit hugely, though, as Rooney's absence should allow him an extended run in the first team.

well i hope he'll be in time for inter...with a week or so..earlier so he can have an official game before that one. We will need a full squad to compete against them and qualify in the next round.
Agreed. Rooney's presence in the team is very important, especially against inter. I hope Rio will be back soon, so as Evra and Park and we should be ok

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he will be cautious over Wayne Rooney's hamstring injury.

Rooney is currently sidelined with the problem he sustained in United's 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic on 14th January.

The England striker is expected to be out for another two weeks, and Ferguson is wary of rushing his return.

Ferguson said in the Daily Mail: "Rooney's never had a hamstring injury before, so you have to be cautious about the way you deal with that."

Rooney has netted six Premier League goals in 18 appearances for the Red Devils so far this season.,19528,11661_4847596,00.html
