Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Wayne Rooney is making good progress from his ugly leg injury.

The striker required surgery on a wound that missed his femoral artery by mere millimetres, and yet Ferguson is confident the striker will return soon.

"Wayne's doing very well," Sir Alex said. "The scar's healed well and he's training terrifically.

"The issue now is when do we decide to bring him into the game? We have to take the medical advice on that one.

"He's training very well but he's not back in football training yet. All his work is being done with the physios at this point in time."
