Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is happy to send Wayne Rooney to the Nike Campus.

The United striker's ankle injury has healed but Ferguson and his staff feel Rooney now requires some intensive fitness training to prepare him for match action.

Sir Alex told ManUtd.com on Friday: "The simple reason Wayne’s going to the US is to continue his rehabilitation programme and undergo a week of concentrated training and conditioning under the supervision of our medical and sports science staff.

"We’ve experienced the fantastic facilities at Nike in the past and are happy for him to be there.”
