Rooney injury recover "very, very positive" says doctor

Wayne Rooney's recovery from a broken foot was described as "very, very positive" on Saturday by England team doctor Leif Sward.

The striker was pictured in Saturday's British newspapers riding a bicycle around Manchester United's training ground.

He broke a bone in his right foot on May 6 when playing against Chelsea in a Premier League match. Rooney was named in England's World Cup squad despite being unlikely to play in the opening group games.

"I just talked to the doctors in Manchester and the report they gave me was very, very positive," Sward was quoted as saying by British newspapers. "I don't want to say so much because we have decided Manchester United's medical team, with Mike Stone in charge, will work with Rooney's recovery.

"I can say they have done a tremendous job with Wayne. And I can say I am very glad for this latest report. Wayne's progress is very positive."

England opens its World Cup campaign against Paraguay on June 10, reports AP.
