Reports claim that the striker was kicked in the face in a training ground accident at the Carrington and was rushed to hospital to receive attention.
With the striker apparently receiving stitches in his face, Rooney is unlikely to feature in tomorrow’s grudge match against Liverpool. This will disappoint punters who backed Rooney to score anytime at sites like bwin.
There has been no confirmation from the club in regards to the incident, but with a number of papers reporting the incident has taken place it could be a case of no smoke without fire.
With David Moyes still looking for his first win at Anfield, this news so close to the game is likely to have thrown a huge spanner in the works.
