Manchester United have been hit with another injury to Wayne Rooney after the Englishman pulled out of training, Mirror reports.

The striker has just recently recovered from a toe injury obtained before United’s Champion’s League exit to Bayern Munich, but may now miss this weekend’s clash against Sunderland with a new injury.

Rooney left the Carrington training ground and will undergo scans to evaluate the extent of the problem, but reports suggest that the 28-year-old only has a stomach bug and was ordered by caretaker boss Ryan Giggs to stay away from team-mates.

The Englishman has been hit by niggling injuries all season, and the Red Devils have suffered during his absences.

Rooney had to play in the Champions League second leg after being injected with pain-killers, showcasing United’s reliance on the striker.

The medical staff will need to assess the former Everton player’s problem before their last game at Old Trafford this season.

However Man United have practically nothing left to play for, and may be left out of the squad by Giggs to guarantee Rooney’s participation in this year’s World Cup.

England boss Roy Hodgson will be naming the final 23-man squad for Brazil on May 12.

    Actually its another one of those excuses from Rooney planning to say that his World Cup stint was not up to par with his media hype due to his injury which has been quite common from this con man for the last couple of years.

    Moreover its a blessing in disguise cause with Kagawa and Mata being able to start and Hernandez?RVP playing up front, we are actually stronger facing Sunderland this weekend. As far as Rooney is concerned he can bloddy leave the club in the summer cause that would only improve the squad and the team performance.
