Man United star targets Everton clash to make injury comeback

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney is looking to make his comeback from injury when his side take on former club Everton on April 3rd, Skysports reports.

The 30-year-old damaged his knee ligament during the 2-1 defeat to Sunderland back on February 13th and has missed his team’s previous eight fixtures.

He was even expected to miss out on the Euros during the summer amid fears that he may not have enough time to regain back his match fitness.

However, Rooney has now come out to reveal that he will miss the upcoming international fixtures, but is keen to mark his return at the start of next month as he prepares himself for Euro 2016.

“It is going as planned. It is going how we first thought. It is going well so hopefully it won’t be too long now,” he said.

“I don’t know for definite but it could be after the international break, obviously I will miss the England games, but it shouldn’t be too long after that.”

United have been suffering a host of injury problems in recent months, a situation that has forced manager Louis van Gaal to call upon a number of academy stars to fill the void.

He has already featured 32 times in all competitions for the Red Devils this term, so far managing to score 14 goals while providing another four assists.
