Rooney insists Man Utd pal Van Persie will recover from spotkick gaffe

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says Robin van Persie will bounce back from his penalty miss against Real Sociedad.

Van Persie missed the chance to earn a Champions League victory in northern Spain when he belted his second-half effort against a post.

"Of course [everyone misses from time to time]," said Rooney after the 0-0 draw.

"Most forwards in the world miss penalties.

"That won't affect him, I'm sure."
