Hooligan's Wake Up: Rooney close to United return

La Liga
Deportivo La Coruna 1-3 Las Palmas
(Lucas 47')-(Araujo 58', 90+3', Garcia 79')

Serie A
AS Roma 1-1 Bologna
(Salah 50')-(Rossettini 25')

Wayne Rooney is nearing his Manchester United return. He played more than an hour with the U21 team this weekend and could be on track to return to action with the senior squad this week against West Ham in an FC Cup replay. Rooney has not played since February 13.

On the other side of Manchester, the news isn't so good. Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany will not be back in time for the second leg of the club's Champions League tie with Paris-St. Germain. Kompany picked up another calf strain in the round of 16 matchup with Dynamo Kiev, and has not played since. The Citizens were hoping he would be back in time to help them advance to the semi-finals of the competition for the first time.

Leicester City are certainly quite the phenomenon this season. They are likely to win their first ever Premier League title and they could very well do that in their home finale against Everton on May 7. Remaining tickets for the match sold out in five minutes and now some lucky ticket holders are looking to cash in on the secondary market. On a couple resale sites, tickets for that match are being sold for £15,000. Many fans who are Leicester City members are usually given priority for ticket purchases are upset they didn't get in and now are mad the tickets could be sold at a premium price on the secondary market.
