Ferguson's warning to Rooney

MANCHESTER: Sir Alex Ferguson admits Wayne Rooney could struggle to win back his Manchester United place when he returns to fitness.

Rooney has always been one of the first names down on Ferguson's team-sheet at Old Trafford, but he is currently sidelined with an ankle problem and Ferguson has hinted that the emergence of Javier Hernandez is threatening the England striker's position.

With Rooney recovering from his injury in Dubai, young Mexican forward Hernandez has seized his chance to such an extent that United's star striker may not walk straight back into the side.

Hernandez struck late winners at Stoke last week-end and in the League Cup victory over Wolves in midweek. And United manager Ferguson is impressed by his new signing's exploits.

“Of course it will be difficult — I'm not even suggesting he (Hernandez) will be left out,” Ferguson said.

“He's keeping his place in the team because he deserves to keep his place in the team.

“We had a feeling he would break through, we had a good feeling about that.

“Therefore it gives you a problem, but the right kind of problem.” — AFP
