Rooney ‘gutted’ to miss United tour

first_imgWayne Rooney has admitted he is “gutted” to miss Manchester United’s tour of the Far East and Australia – but at least he should be fit for the new season. Incredibly less than 16 hours after his arrival in Thailand, Rooney was on his way home again after scans revealed he had torn his hamstring. United immediately took the decision to send the 27-year-old back to the UK – even though he had only landed that morning. It means Rooney will miss visits to Australia – including a planned trip to State of Origin, Japan and Hong Kong – in addition to United’s tour opener against Singha All Stars in Bangkok on Saturday. Press Associationcenter_img “Gutted to have picked up a niggling injury especially as training was going so well, heading back to Manchester to have it assessed fully but early indications are nothing to worry about,” said Rooney on his Facebook page as he headed for the airport. If Rooney is ruled out for a month it would mean he could feature in the Community Shield against Wigan at Wembley on August 11. The incident came just a day after manager David Moyes revealed United staff had told him Rooney had returned for pre-season training in his best shape for years. It is bound to trigger conspiracy theories given it comes against the backdrop of uncertainty over his United future. Moyes repeated again yesterday that Rooney is not for sale and that the 27-year-old would not be going anywhere. However, there has still been no word from the player about his intentions. Chelsea are said to be interested in purchasing Rooney and ironically, Jose Mourinho and his players are also due in Bangkok later on Friday as they continue preparations for the new campaign. Arsenal have also been linked with the forward, as have Paris St Germain. With Robin van Persie not due to link up with his team-mates until the get to Australia on Sunday, Shinji Kagawa resting for an additional week after the Confederations Cup and Javier Hernandez not involved in the tour at all, it leaves Moyes with only Danny Welbeck as an orthodox striker ahead of Saturday’s game. It completed a difficult 24 hours for the new United boss, who is facing up to the probability that one of his major transfer targets, Thiago Alcantara, has snubbed a switch to Old Trafford in favour of linking up with former boss Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich. “Yes,” Guardiola told reporters in Munich earlier, when asked if he was interested in Thiago “I don’t know what’s going to happen. We have to wait. But I know him very well. He is a super, super player.” last_img read more

Byron Scott still senses support from Lakers front office

first_imgScott revealed he and Kupchak have addressed “what we can do to get these young guys better and make the procedure for them a lot easier.”Yet, Scott said Kupchak has left Scott freedom to coach as he sees fit. “I’ve told him what I’m thinking about doing at times, some of the things I want to do with the young guys and some of the things I want to do with some of our veteran guys,” Scott said. “But as far as the coaching part, he hasn’t talked about making changes.” Changing his tuneAfter not playing in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ blowout loss to Golden State on Tuesday, rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell sounded firm on where he stood on that issue. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “You’re only a rookie once. You get reps now and mess up now,” Russell told Los Angeles News Group. “So then next year when you’re not a rookie, you don’t have to worry about making rookie mistakes.”Russell softened his stance following Wednesday’s practice, arguing he can learn through “both” playing and sitting.“You have to learn by experience,” Russell said, “and learn by watching.”Scott argued Russell would not have benefited from playing in garbage time.“He could also mess around and get hurt,” Scott said. “I’d rather sit him at that time and he can see what’s going on.” Change of routineScott has not changed his support for Kobe Bryant after averaging 15.2 points on a career-low 31.1 percent per game. “I know his mentality is that he can still play in this league,” Scott said. “And we feel the same way.”Scott has ruled out reducing Bryant’s minutes or his role. But Scott conceded that Bryant’s workout regimen is “sometimes too much.” “He comes out and makes 500 shots. Then the next day, he’s a little sore,” Scott said of Bryant. “He does it and I tell him to trim back on it. We have to find a happy medium.” center_img As the Lakers finished practice earlier this week, coach Byron Scott and general manager Mitch Kupchak talked near center court. Scott reported he and Kupchak have “been talking almost every other day” throughout the Lakers’ 2-12 start.They enter Friday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers (6-10) at Moda Center with a worse start than even last season, which eventually ended with a franchise-worst 21-61 record. Yet, Scott said he still senses support from Kupchak and Lakers executive vice president of basketball personnel Jim Buss. Scott is in the second-year of a four-year contract worth $17 million, with a team option for the final season.“We still understand that this is a process,” Scott said. “We have a lot of young guys on this team that we feel will be very good players. But it’s not going to happen in a month. It’s going to take some time. It might take a year or two.”last_img read more
