Manchester United striker/midfielder Wayne Rooney injured his hamstring in training today, and is flying back from the Red Devils Asia Tour. According to reports, he’s a doubt for the first game of the Premier League season on August 17.

“Following a scan this evening on a hamstring injury sustained in training, it has been decided that Wayne Rooney should return home immediately for further assessment and rehabilitation,” read a statement by the club.

Newspaper reports are saying that Rooney could be out of action for one month, but those reports appear to be premature.
