Rooney, Van Persie to Miss Chelsea Clash

Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie will both miss Manchester United’s big Premier League clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend, Coach David Moyes confirmed. While Rooney has still not recovered from a groin injury, van Persie has been out since December with a thigh problem. “We have missed both of them but they are getting closer," Moyes said.

The United coach also confirmed that midfielder Anderson is in Florence completing a medical ahead of a proposed loan move to the Serie A giant for the remainder of the season. "He has not been able to get as many games as he would have hoped," the former Everton coach said. "This is a good opportunity at a good club in a good league. Hopefully he will get some benefit from that."

Moyes also commented on Chelsea’s public pursuit of Rooney this summer as well as his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho. "We were never going to sell Wayne Rooney, so my relationship with Jose has been fine," said Moyes. "I respect him for the success he has had and the way he has managed his clubs. He is one of the best modern-day managers and might go on to be one of the greatest."
