'Fergie Frightened Life Out Of Me'

Wayne Rooney has admitted he was frightened of Sir Alex before he joined the Old Trafford outfit.

Rooney: 'Sir Alex Ferguson was very important in my decision to join United.

'He has worked with a lot of young players and always got the best out of them and I wanted him to do the same with me.

'In that sense, he is everything I expected him to be.

'I used to watch him on TV and think he looked like a very fierce man. That is exactly what he is. He is passionate about his football and loves to win.

'On Saturday, we want to lay down a marker for next season. Over the last four or five months we have played really well and I am sure we can continue that.

'We need to start better than we did this year and then, hopefully, it will be a lot closer.'

Last season I expected you guys to comeback stronger than ever, but it didn't materialise, until too late, with the gooners imploding domestically and the hubcap boys equally leaving it way too late to show any form. Now it comes down to our game on saturday to finish the season off....hopefully. But once again I think next season could be the most competitive Premiership season ever,frankly I welcome that, a bit of fear going into games makes victory all the sweeter. So come on enjoy the fear on saturday, you do not want us to win the title playing you, we want to win it in our last home game...all set up for a cracking match.

Rooney admitting defeat in the premiership title? I bet Sir Alex hasn't yet publicly however privately maybe a different matter.
