Man Utd boss Ferguson unsure when Rooney will return

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson chose to rest Wayne Rooney for last night's draw with Benfica due to a hip problem.

The result leaves United facing the likelihood of qualifying second from their Champions League group.

Asked about Rooney's condition, Ferguson said: "He wasn't fit for tonight, so we need to wait to see what he is like over the next few days.

"We will give him every chance, of course - we did for today, but he wasn't really fit, so we'll just have to wait."
