Man U will be fine without Roo, says skipper Neville

Posted By: Staff

London, Apr.3 (ANI): Manchester United skipper Gary Neville has said that the team can still beat Chelsea without star striker Wayne Rooney.

Neville believes other players can step up to the plate in the absence of their 34-goal top scorer - starting with today's title showdown at Old Trafford.

"Wayne will be a miss for us as he has been in form. But, in the past, people have always stood up to the plate and delivered. We've had key players out for big matches before and still won. We've gone into finals without two or three major players and come through," The Sun quoted Neville, as saying.

"All teams get injuries and bans. You have to cope," he added. (ANI)
