So maybe it's a bit more than a typical phantom ManU-player-before-an-international-friendly injury.
Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Wayne Rooney faces a race to be fit for next Sunday's Premiership opener against Fulham....The striker was missing again today as Manchester United wrapped up their pre-season campaign with a 3-0 triumph over UEFA Cup winners Sevilla and Ferguson revealed he could be struggling to face the Cottagers next weekend. 'It is going to be a push for Wayne to be fit,' said the United boss. 'He has a groin injury, which is causing a little bit of bother at the moment. 'It is nothing serious but there is a worry about next Sunday.'
