Sir Alex Ferguson reveals that he is not surprised by the length of Wayne Rooney's Euro ban.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he was not surprised at the length of Wayne Rooney's Euro ban.

The striker was handed a three-game suspension by UEFA on Thursday, which means that he will miss all of England's group games at next year's tournament.

"I expected a three-match ban, I must admit," Ferguson told MUTV. "Sending-offs usually carry that and I didn't think there was going to be any leniency towards England.

"He is going to miss the group games for England, which is a blow for him and England."

Meanwhile, Rooney is expected to feature for United when they take on Liverpool at Anfield today.
