Rooney Sent To US For Further Rehabilitation

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney has been sent to America for rehabilitation and conditioning work to improve his fitness. This means he will miss the derby match next Wednesday against Manchester City.

The Red Devils would have liked Rooney to be available in the big match, but it won't happen.

Rooney has not figured for United since their 2-2 draw with West Brom on 16th October, with matters off the field having dominated the headlines since then.

Rooney is due to return to the UK from the US on 13th November, but when he will put on a United shirt again remains to be seen.

Redknapp Upset at Manchester United Goal

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will stop doing post-match interviews if punished for describing Manchester United winger Nani's goal on Saturday as "a farce".

The Football Association will decide on Tuesday whether to charge Redknapp for his comments after Spurs' 2-0 defeat.

"Good luck to them if they want to make an issue of what I said, then I'll make some issues as well," said Redknapp.

"Don't expect me to come out on the TV any more, ever, and speak to the press after the game, because I won't do it."

With Manchester United leading 1-0, and six minutes of the match remaining, Nani slotted past Heurelho Gomes with the Spurs keeper looking on, believing he had lined up a free-kick after the winger's handball.
