 I would totally agree that we would have preferred last night's game to finish in 90 minutes and I have always said teams don't get the proper help when they are in Europe. Having to play Sunday lunchtime after a Thursday game is not fair but it happens time and again when we see repeatedly teams abroad being allowed to bring games forward to suit their programme. That is a fact.

 Wayne [Rooney] did his groin on Thursday. We were doing simple possession exercises and he tweaked his groin. We got him out training on Friday and he tried it, but it wasn’t good enough. We have to look at maybe two or three weeks.

 I must say the finish was absolutely brilliant, To have the audacity to try that at the stage of the game tells you about his courage. Not many players would have tried that, particularly from such a tight angle. It was fantastic – 10 out of 10 for doing it.

 He had a training session yesterday and did everything we could have asked of him. The medical people thought there was no danger, other than he might feel it in the second-half, so we felt it was worth the risk. Unfortunately he went over on the ankle again. There were a couple of challenges on him and I don't think he got any protection from the referee but it is not too serious. I don't think he will be ready for Sunday but he should be available for next week.
