WAYNE [SHREK] ROONEY could be out for up to TWO months.
And that means the Manchester United ace may miss 14 games.
Shocked medics said the horrific gash on Rooney’s right leg was among the worst of that type.
The cut went through to the bone injuring the muscle in his thigh.
Boss Alex [red-nose] Ferguson had thought it would only sideline Rooney, 26, for a month.
Now he could miss England’s World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, United’s first three Champions League matches and crunch league games against Liverpool, Newcastle and Chelsea.
Rooney [shrek] needed 10 stitches to pull his skin together.
Another long weaving stitch will have been inserted inside his leg the length of the cut to repair the damage caused when Fulham striker Hugo Rodellega inadvertently stood on him.
Rooney, who had been axed after his poor performance at Everton, now has a fight on three fronts: To get fit[*], back in the team and have a future at Old Trafford.
