Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has returned to team training ahead of their crucial EFL Cup final match against Southampton this weekend.

The English international has not been part of Manchester United since their goalless draw against Hull City on February 1. He has been working his way back from the minor muscular injury he has suffered earlier this month and manager Jose Mourinho has not mentioned a specific date when the forward will return back to the action.

The 31-year old was seen training in the 23-man squad on Tuesday morning. He has also trained separately with a 10-man group which suggests that he might very well have a role to play when Manchester United face off against St Etienne in Europa League on Thursday.

Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian, Michael Carrick, Rooney, Jese Lingard, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are the 10 players who have trained separately on Tuesday as the club warms up for an exciting week ahead.

Rooney has not been a major part of the squad under Jose Mourinho as his role was very limited this season as he is currently in the middle one of his worst seasons ever.

However, the Red Devils will look to add as much silverware as possible by the end of the season as they remain the only English club to be playing in all four possible competitions.

Manchester United will face against Southampton in EFL Cup on Sunday while they also play with a 3-0 advantage against St Etienne to progress to Round of 16 in Europa League.
