Jose Mourinho has claimed that Wayne Rooney could miss Sunday’s Premier League match aganist Sunderland due to an ankle injury.
Wayne Rooney has started just one top-flight match in 2017 and has been hampered with three separate injury problems over the past two months.
Rooney was not in the squad for Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford, and after the match, Mourinho revealed that his forward suffered an injury after making a substitute appearance in last Saturday’s goalless draw with West Bromwich Albion.
“Two ankles, so I don’t know [if he will be fit for the Sunderland game],” the Manchester Evening Newsquotes Mourinho as saying. “I don’t know but two ankles, I don’t think it’s easy to recover in a couple of days.”
Wayne Rooney has started just nine Premier League games this season, scoring two goals and creating five assists in the top flight.
