Earlier today Sir Alex Ferguson conducted a press conference where he revealed that Wayne Rooney wants to leave Manchester United.
In the above video, the unusually solemn Ferguson recounts his side of the story in terms of Rooney’s injury and what the club has done to help and support him. He talks about how he can’t believe that Rooney wants to leave a club with a great history and stadium as well as a support system that helps his footballers thrive.
Ferguson says he doesn’t know why Rooney wants to leave.
From a PR perspective, it’s a good move by Ferguson and Manchester United. The ball is now in Rooney’s court to decide what he wants to do. Ferguson remained open to having Rooney stay with the team, but the pressure is definitely on Rooney now.
