Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand passed fit for Man Utd
Manchester United's Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand have been declared fit for Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg at Bayern Munich.The England internationals missed Saturday's 4-0 win at Bolton, striker Rooney with a foot injury and defender Ferdinand because of a groin problem.
But they were among the United party that checked in at Manchester Airport.
Ex-Chelsea star Arjen Robben is a doubt for Bayern after he injured his calf in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by VfB Stuttgart.
Robben pulled up late in the game after coming on as a second-half substitute.
"Maybe it will turn out not to be that bad but it looks difficult for the United match," said coach Louis Van Gaal.
The Dutchman has been a key figure for Bayern since joining the club from Real Madrid in the summer and in midweek scored an extra-time winner against Schalke 04 in midweek to send Bayern through to the German Cup final.
Bayern are in the running for three trophies, including the Bundesliga, and have a busy schedule in the coming two weeks.
For United winger Ryan Giggs, the meeting with Bayern brings back memories of his side's memorable comeback in the 1999 Champions League final, when they hit back to win 2-1 as part of their Treble that season.
"I can't believe it's 11 years ago," said the 36-year-old Welshman.
