Wayne Rooney will miss Manchester United’s Premier League match against Blackburn on Sunday because of his ankle injury.

The England striker limped out of Wednesday’s Champions League elimination to Bayern Munich in the 55th minute after aggravating the ankle problem he sustained eight days earlier.

Rooney damaged ankle ligaments in the 2-1 first leg loss in Munich and sat out the weekend Premier League loss to Chelsea before returning for the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.
