Man United handed fitness boost ahead of West Brom clash

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed that club captain Wayne Rooney is fit to face West Brom this weekend.

The England international attacker suffered a knee injury in last weekend’s 3-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park that threatened to rule him out of the Old Trafford clash with the Baggies.

However, Van Gaal has stated that the United talisman would be fit and raring to go against Tony Pulis’ men.

“Rooney is fit to play, it was not so heavy as we expected,” the manager told the United official website.

”Wayne is very important for us, so I am very happy.”

Rooney has played in a number of different positions for the historic Manchester club this season, including in a deeper role in midfield.

The woes of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie have meant that the Englishman has been a key player for United in attack this term.

United have suffered defeats to Chelsea and Everton in consecutive weeks and as such will be keen to get three points against West Brom to take one step further towards guaranteeing Champions League football for next season.
