Man Utd boss Ferguson delighted with Rooney form

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was happy with Wayne Rooney's performance in defeat to Champions League opponents CFR Cluj.

Ferguson feels it was an essential step towards Rooney regaining full fitness following his recent absence with tonsillitis ahead of Sunday's short trip to Manchester City.

"Wayne has another 90 minutes under his belt and hopefully by Sunday he is in real top form," said the manager.

"He is approaching that now but Sunday will be a different kettle of fish altogether."
