Wayne Rooney to miss Manchester United trip to Valencia

Wayne Rooney will not travel with the Manchester United squad for Wednesday’s Champions League match against Valencia because of an ankle injury.

The Premier League club had hoped the 24-year-old striker would be fit for the crunch tie at the Mestalla Stadium.

But Rooney, who was substituted in the second half of Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Bolton due to the problem, now joins winger Ryan Giggs on the sidelines.

Giggs has a hamstring problem that will rule out for the next two weeks.

United, who opened their Group C campaign with a disappointing 0-0 draw with Rangers, face a Valencia side currently top of La Liga.

The Spanish club began their Champions League quest with a 4-0 defeat of Turkish team Bursaspor.

Rooney has endured a poor start to the season, with United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitting last week that the player is feeling the strain of being in the media spotlight after allegations about his private life.
