Guardiola Bets Beer On Rooney Return

Manchester United’s hopes of progressing to the Champions League semi-final have been given a boost by Wayne Rooney’s return to practice on Tuesday.

The United forward had missed United’s comfortable 4-0 victory at Newcastle on Saturday due to a toe injury, but seems likely to be ready for the second leg with European champions, Bayern Munich, on Wednesday night.

Rooney has been involved in 39 goals (17 scored and 20 assisted) in 37 games in all competitions this season and Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, is convinced the England international will not miss the clash in Munich.

"He is going to play. 100 percent. He is going to play I bet you a big, big glass of beer," said Guardiola.

"I believe he is going to play, and Valencia too. Rooney is going to play. He is a big player."

United left-back, Patrice Evra, who had missed the first leg through suspension, is set to return to David Moyes’ starting line-up, while Rafael and Marouane Fellaini are doubts after they didn’t participate in the practice on Tuesday.

Does Wayne Rooney's return boost Manchester United's chances to upset Bayern Munich tomorrow? Have your say in the comment section below.
