Man Utd boss Ferguson calm over latest Rooney injury setback

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson isn't overly concerned with Wayne Rooney's latest injury.

Ferguson will hope to have his £27million forward back for the Old Trafford encounter with West Brom on October 16, which would mean he would only miss three games - and one of those is England's Euro 2012 qualifier with Montenegro.

"Wayne has done quite well with his recovery from injury in the past," said the United boss, ahead of Wednesday night's encounter with Valencia at the Mestalla.

"It is a straightforward ankle injury. And it is not the same one he did in Munich."
