Rooney Can't Be Bothered About Citeh

Wayne Rooney realises the importance of beating Manchester City at the weekened - but he's not annoyed by the publicity that our smaller neighbours get.

Ever since their takeover on transfer deadline day Citeh are constantly linked to the best players in the world who usually hasten to dismiss such rumours which is, frankly, no surprise. But for the first time, erm, ever, the media focus on Manchester has shifted targets.

Rooney, though, can live with it, thank you very much.

'It doesn't irritate us that City are getting all this publicity. If they were winning trophies it would irritate me but while they are still lingering in mid-table I am not really too bothered about it.'

Indeed, it's a laugh seeing them being snubbed by everyone. But on to more important matters: with United dropping points here, there and everywhere, we must win at the Council House.

'Sunday is a massive game. Yes, we owe the fans a derby win even though we did win two trophies last season.

'Losing both games was extremely disappointing. It is a massive game for the players, the fans and the club - especially after what has happened at City with the takeover.'

'It will be nice to show them who are the kings of Manchester. I missed both derbies last season and that was really frustrating having to watch when you cannot do anything about it. I am looking forward to Sunday'

Can I just say how pleased I was that Rooney apologised for diving? I do not by any means condone it - I was disappointed with it, but it was totally out of character (He normally doesn't go down under even the toughest challenges). I was just impressed with the way he apologised - his temperament (I do hope I don't say this and then he gets sent off at City) has improved loads, and we actually see him WALKING CALMLY AWAY instead of getting angry. I hope we have got a mature Rooney now, and once he starts scoring again, he could turn into one of the best players in the world AT LAST.
