Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Wayne Rooney will be fit for the Champions League clash with Valencia on Wednesday night.
The United forward was replaced just after the hour mark in the 2-2 draw with Bolton on Sunday, and was seen icing his ankle in the dugout.
But Ferguson is confident Rooney will be ready for the midweek clash with the Spaniards.
He told ESPN: “Wayne Rooney had a bit of a knock. He has a little issue with his ankle. We don’t know how serious.
“We will have a look in the morning but we think he will be OK for Wednesday.
“He has been playing with it for a couple of weeks now and during the game we decided he wasn’t getting into the areas we wanted and he wasn’t getting chances, so we had to change it.”
However, it was not all good news for Ferguson, with veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs facing a spell on the sidelines after sustaining an injury at the Reebok Stadium.
He added: “It is a hamstring and I am afraid he will be out for a couple of weeks.”
