Wayne Rooney is yet to join full-scale training at Manchester United as he recovers from a severe head injury.

Rooney is yet to resume full training with Manchester United as he aims to return from injury ahead of the derby against rivals City a week on Sunday.

Rooney, 27, was working with United physios at the club’s Carrington training complex on Wednesday as he recovers from the deep cut to his head after an accidental clash with Phil Jones almost two weeks ago.

But the United striker is rated 50-50 for the game against Manuel Pellegrini’s City at the Etihad Stadium on September 22.
