Man Utd boss Ferguson: Rooney must keep playing

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Wayne Rooney will play tonight against Champions League opponents CFR Cluj.

Ferguson confirmed that while he will make changes to his line-up on Wednesday, Rooney will be in his starting XI.

"It has always been the case that Wayne needs to be playing games to get his match fitness," said Ferguson.

"He is a really strongly built lad. If he misses a game he needs three to come back."
