Van Gaal confirms injuries for Rooney and Rojo - Official Manchester United Website
Rooney sustained an ankle problem during last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium and is unavailable to face the Hammers. That means the captain will not register his 500th Reds appearance this weekend, an impressive landmark that only nine other players have achieved.
Quizzed further on Rooney, van Gaal said: "It’s a nasty injury. When we go on it’s been getting worse. We have to let him train to make the ankle stronger, that’s very important. I cannot say [how long he's out for] because the doctor shall decide that with Wayne of course. He is training well in the rehabilitation."
