Yokohama, Japan: Manchester United boss David Moyes Tuesday said Wayne Rooney is coming back to fitness after a hamstring injury and moved to reassure fans the striker is not leaving the club.

"So far as I know, he is coming back, he is jogging," Moyes told reporters in Japan. "We are not going to lose him."
