Wayne Rooney Believes Alex Ferguson Has Influence at Manchester United: Nightly Soccer Report

Wayne Rooney believes that Sir Alex Ferguson is still one of the power brokers at Manchester United, which is one of the reasons why the striker wants to leave the club, reports The Guardian tonight.

Rooney has reason to believe that Ferguson still has an influence at the club. Ferguson lied about Rooney submitting a transfer request at the end of last season, when the club admit now that Rooney didn’t. Ferguson handpicked Moyes as his successor. And now Rooney believes Ferguson’s broken relationship is negatively impacting his status at the club.

The article reads as if either Rooney or his agent spoke directly to reporter Jamie Jackson to reveal the footballer’s concern.

What do you think? Is Rooney paranoid, or does Ferguson still have a key influence at the club? Who’s right in this situation? Rooney or Manchester United? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

  1. Rooney and his camp need to stop using the media to voice their opinions.

    Sit down with the manager or call him on the phone (since they’re on tour and he’s in England).

    As a United supporter, I could care less if he stays or goes. United have covered up for his drinking, smoking, and infidelity.

    He really doesn’t understand how lucky he is to play for United. He and his people need to f**k off.

    1. Rooney is united’s back bone n nearly all united fans act as if they cant c I am a rooney fa n I hope he goes chelsea because once he leaves moyes will b beggin

  2. Old Shrek he is about as sharp as a butter knife. What a idiot if he thought SAF was not going to have any influence at MUFC. Not a MUFC fan but i hope they drop this ingrate and overpaid POS!

  3. Every one here says something on wayne, has he come out and told anything, U people believe in some unknown writers but not in a guy who served u for 10 years……Petty u fans who dont know what he is to team….Y u people feel sir alex is more than a team god know, If he says some thing u listen to him blindily without thinking because wayne has done mistake 2years back…

    1. Wayne Rooney has been playing for Utd for less than 10 years and SAF has led Utd for more than 20 years.

  4. Rooney’s unhappiness is making headlines AGAIN this year and sports agents make a lot of money on transfers, so I’m wondering if the advice he’s currently getting is in his best interests.
