Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that Wayne Rooney and his agent Paul Stretford have been standing over Manchester United and himself since the summer. There is no earthly reason to doubt him, so in that case there can only be one sensible solution – Rooney and Stretford must PISS OFF to the Sheik or whoever is prepared to fork out the most millions, and the sooner the better.
Ferguson should be applauded for refusing to negotiate under the threat of blackmail and just for this once, so should David Gill and the Glazers for giving their full support to Sir Alex. If Rooney and Stretford decide to go to Eastlands, so be it. City are determined to become the biggest club in Manchester but it will never happen. They may be able to win some silverware in the short term but the only thing that City will ever be able to claim is that they are the biggest SPENDING club in Manchester.
It’s interesting to note that the response so far from United fans has been one of who cares, if he wants to go, let him go. No sympathy for Rooney whatsoever and no apparent regret as their was when Cristiano Ronaldo went to Madrid. The only disappointment seem to be the fact that Rooney is largely responsible for this whole mess himself. If the millions that City are offering cannot be resisted, please do us a favour and go cross the divide. Just stop kissing the badge of whoever you’re playing for because there’s nothing more certain that by the end of your contract you will be kissing a different one!
Will you be sorry to see Rooney leave Old Trafford?
