Ankle Injury Rules Wayne Rooney Out Of Manchester United's Champions League Clash With Valencia

Manchester United have confirmed under fire star Wayne Rooney has been left out of the Champions League squad to face Valencia due to an ankle injury.

Rooney, 24, has endured a miserable start to the season after accusations about his private life seemed to effect his form on the pitch. This was evident in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Bolton Wanderers after he was withdrawn with an ankle knock after an ineffective 60 minute performance.

The story is too old to be commented.

Valenica has been absolut fabelous this season. United has a really hard match- and they need their best squad to have chances of 3 points. Neither Rooney or Berbatov played well against Bolton, so I am not so optimist on this match.
