Capello: I know Sir Alex will take care of Man Utd striker Rooney

England coach Fabio Capello had no issue with Manchester United fielding Wayne Rooney against Bayern Munich last week.

Rooney was forced from the field early in the second-half having aggravated his sprained ankle injury.

Capello told the Daily Mail: "I perfectly understand Sir Alex Ferguson's decision to play him because he knows how important Rooney is psychologically for the whole team. I do not think he took an unnecessary risk."
