Manchester United striker Rooney returns for Betis win

London: Wayne Rooney made his Manchester United comeback in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Real Betis on Saturday.

The England international was part of a strong United line-up that also featured Nemanja Vidic, Nani and Javier Hernandez - and he completed a useful workout to step up his recovery from a hamstring injury.

David Moyes` side ran out 3-0 winners against the Spanish outfit in a game held at the the club`s Carrington training ground.

Rooney has been missing for much of the club`s pre-season campaign after returning early from the tour of Asia and Moyes had previously stated that the 27-year-old would likely return for the friendly against Swedish outfit AIK on August 6.

However, he was given an early run-out against the Liga side.

The former Everton striker`s future has been shrouded in doubt throughout the close-season, with Chelsea confirming a bid for his services - although Moyes remains adamant that the Premier League champions will not sell.
