Manchester United boss David Moyes denies he's isolating Wayne Rooney from the rest of his squad.

Moyes discussed Rooney after their Community Shield win over Wigan Athletic.

"I'm quite enjoying talking about it because I'm hearing so many of you getting it wrong.

"I want him to join up with England. He trained with us yesterday. He's not ready. You'll probably see that in the game.

"He'll probably play a chunk of the game but he's had no football. He's had 45 minutes against Real Betis in a friendly where he hurt his shoulder.

"Apart from that since he came back for pre-season he's had no match action. You probably wouldn't expect somebody in that condition to be playing for a long period. He's coming back, he's breaking himself back into the team.

"It will be great for Manchester United because hopefully Wayne will get some playing time. He wasn't ready for today but he has a chance of being ready for Wednesday."
