David Moyes’s First Press Conference As Manchester United Manager [VIDEO]

david moyes David Moyess First Press Conference As Manchester United Manager [VIDEO]

Manchester United manager David Moyes held his first press conference today as the new boss at Old Trafford and said a few noteworthy things including how he got the job at United, and that Wayne Rooney is not for sale.

“Wayne Rooney is not for sale. He’s a Manchester United player and will remain a Manchester United player.

“I’ve had several meetings with Wayne, he’s training brilliantly well, he’s come back in good shape and I really look forward to working with him.

“We’ve spoken several times and I’m saying: ‘whatever happened before is gone Wayne, we’re working together now. And I see a glint in his eye now. He looks happy, as if he is saying ‘I’m going to knuckle down and get myself right’. I can only say I’ve been impressed with how he’s done.”

While Moyes’s words will be reassuring to Manchester United supporters, it’d be great to hear Rooney say something similar and to show how committed he is to Manchester United by playing to his abilities on the pitch. The next several weeks will give us a clear indication of how committed Rooney really is.
