Sir Alex Ferguson will keep Wayne Rooney straining at the leash on Saturday as Manchester United look to maintain the winning habit at Tottenham.
Ferguson confirmed on Friday that Rooney had been the all-clear to resume his career following the latest scan on the foot he broke on England duty
during Euro 2004.
However, rather than pitching the 27million teenager straight into his squad for the Premiership trip to White Hart Lane, the Red Devils chief has
left the striker in Manchester in readiness for a likely Old Trafford debut against either Fenerbahce on Tuesday or Middlesbrough on October 3.
