Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney will miss this weekend’s game against Newcastle, the club announced on Friday.

Manager David Moyes spoke to the clubs television, MUTV, to confirm the news.

“He’s got a badly bruised toe,” said Moyes.

The club’s tweet also suggested that Rooney may be a doubt for the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich in Germany next week.

The England man has scored 15 goals and contributed 10 assists in 27 league games this season.
