Bayern's Dante wary of struggling Rooney

Bayern`s Dante wary of struggling Rooney

Munich: Brazil`s Dante says Bayern Munich must be wary of Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney, who is set to play with a pain-killing injection in Wednesday`s Champions League quarter-final, second-leg.

The 28-year-old missed United`s 4-0 win at Newcastle United on Saturday due to a toe injury, sparking fears that he could be forced to sit out Wednesday`s return leg at Munich`s Allianz Arena, with the tie delicately poised at 1-1.

Rooney trained with the United squad on Tuesday shortly before their departure for Germany and manager David Moyes has said the England striker is set to play with a pain-killing injection.

Bayern`s centre-back Dante knows all about Rooney from England`s 2-2 draw against Brazil at Rio de Janeiro`s Maracana last June.

The Manchester United star gave the visitors a late 2-1 lead before Paulinho spared the Selecao`s blushes with an equaliser eight minutes from time, and Dante says even an injured Rooney is dangerous.

"I played against him for Brazil. He`s a world-class striker," said Dante, who missed the first-leg at Old Trafford through suspension.

"He reads the game well, he`s lightning fast over the first few yards and he has a brilliant shot."
