Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Rooney, van Persie and Shaw


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are fit to face West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

The Englishman recovered from a knee injury suffered last Sunday against Everton with the Dutchman featuring for the Under-21s and coming through the action unscathed on Monday.

"Rooney is fit to play, it was not so heavy as we expected," van Gaal told MUTV.

"Wayne is very important for us, so I am very happy. [Phil] Jones is fit but we have to see his match rhythm, of course. But [Luke] Shaw has trouble with his groin so he cannot play.

"It is unbelievable [for Jonny Evans].

"For six weeks he had nothing and he could not play or participate in the selection [due to suspension] and then he had an injury. It is unbelievable, but it is true.

"He [Robin van Persie] played 80 minutes [for the Under-21s], and I think that's good. When you score two goals also, it gives a boost for the confidence of Robin.

"He can play but we have to wait and see if I let him play, of course."
