by BobbyT 0

Striker Wayne Rooney has been left out of Manchester United’s squad for Wednesday’s Europa League last-32 second-leg tie against Saint-Etienne.

Rooney, 31, has missed the last four United games with a minor leg injury and does not make the trip despite training on Tuesday morning.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah is included in the 20-man squad but full-backs Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian miss out.

Jose Mourinho’s side have a 3-0 advantage after the first leg.

Midfielder Ander Herrera is suspended and defender Phil Jones is absent with a hamstring injury.

Following the trip to France, United will face Southampton on Sunday in the EFL Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier believes his side are still in the tie despite a Zlatan Ibrahimovic hat-trick in the first leg.

He said: “We have a huge but not insurmountable handicap. We will play in another big atmosphere. The stadium will be full.

“We must respect our public. It is impossible for us not to put out the best team possible for as long as there remains hope of qualification. In a game, anything can happen.”
