Pep Guardiola is 100% certain and willing to bet "a big, big glass of beer" that Wayne Rooney will play for Manchester United against Bayern Munich in Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg despite the striker having a toe injury. Rooney was able to train with the team on Tuesday despite David Moyes revealing on Friday that the forward was a doubt for the game. Rooney suffered the injury in last Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the first leg. This caused him to miss Saturday's 4-0 win at Newcastle United, with the forward's availability for the deciding leg at the Allianz Arena in the balance. Yet Guardiola told his Tuesday morning pre-match media briefing that he is convinced that Rooney – and Antonio Valencia – will definitely play.
