It's difficult to say but he was injured in the game versus Sunderland and has a knee problem. We have to wait and see how long that takes. I cannot say.
Van Gaal appeared to suggest Rooney suffered his injury during the defeat at Sunderland on Saturday, but it remains unclear. "That's also typical Wayne. He's a guy who wants to go until the end and if he is feeling pain, he doesn't want to go away, and certainly when you are drawing a match because he wants to win. That's a fantastic attitude but also it's bad for his body. You do not know when it happened, so that's the difficulty.
We have in Martial another striker, he has played several matches in this role and wants to play in it. I knew in advance that Rooney would play a lot of matches, then I have called Will Keane back and he has done very well in the second team. Sometimes you have to show it at the higher level and maybe he'll get the chance to show it - you never know.
