Manchester, United Kingdom:

Manchester United manager David Moyes says Wayne Rooney injured his hamstring before the club's preseason tour to Asia and Australia and dismissed suggestions the striker is set to leave the club.

Rooney returned home after only one day in Thailand and is expected to be out of action for a month, placing him in doubt for United's first match of the Premier League season against Swansea on Aug. 17.

Moyes says Rooney "felt his hamstring tighten up right at the end of training" on the day the team went on tour, and that after it arrived a scan revealed "a small grade one injury."

Rooney's early return provoked further speculation about his future. The 27-year-old England international has been linked with a transfer away from the club.
