Jerome Boateng: 'Wayne Rooney will be vital for Manchester United'

Jerome Boateng admits that Wayne Rooney will be a key man in the second leg of the quarter-final between Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has claimed that Wayne Rooney is the key player for Manchester United ahead of the meeting between the two sides.

The Champions League quarter-final is delicately poised following a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Old Trafford, and Boateng was eager to talk about Rooney's importance as concerns about the striker missing the match became the main talking point.

"I don't think he will miss the return," the German told the club's official website. "But if it's true, it would certainly be a big loss for United.

"Rooney is the key man for United. He always makes himself available, he goes looking for the ball, he takes the free kicks and corners and he's always good for a goal"

United manager David Moyes has confirmed that Rooney may need an injection in his toe before the game against Bayern.
