Wayne Rooney's return for English premier league football side Manchester United, after injury, has been delayed with manager Alex Ferguson saying the striker may be sidelined for a further two weeks.

Rooney injured his knee ligament in training and missed United's holiday fixtures against Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic but he had been expected to be in contention for tonight's FA Cup tie at West Ham United.
