Everton v Manchester United: Wayne Rooney to return for clash at Goodison Park
Rooney began his professional career at Goodison Park
Friday 18 April 2014
Wayne Rooney is set to be available for Manchester United against his former team Everton on Sunday.
Rooney returned to full training for the first time since the 3-1 Champions League quarter-final defeat at Bayern Munich at Carrington this week, when he played the full 90 minutes with a suspected chipped toe, although it appears that he suffered no more than heavy bruising.
For David Moyes, it will be his first return to Goodison Park, since he was elected by Sir Alex Ferguson to be his replacement last summer. Moyes must also make a decision on another former Toffees' player, Marouane Fellaini, who has recovered from a calf injury.
Rooney began his career at Everton, bursting on the scene aged 16 in 2002 before signing for United in August 2004 for £28m.
