Rooney: This Is My Club, I Have No Reason To Leave

David Gill and Sir Alex Ferguson both declared that Wayne Rooney will not be going anywhere, Real Madrid denied their alleged interest in him and now the player himself has rubbished the rumours of moving to Spain.

'This is my club. I'm very happy here. My family live 30 minutes away. I'm perfectly happy and there is no reason to play my football anywhere else. Manchester United are the biggest club in the world.'

End of story, as far as I'm concerned. Rooney also went on to admit that maybe he hasn't been entirely fair to his old boss David Moyes.

'Things haven't been good between us,' he said.

'I've said a few bad things in the past about him but, when I look back, I see what he did for me. He helped make me the player I am.'

And we're eternally grateful for that help, aren't we?

Firstly, its nice to see that he is now maturing to the point where he can look back and see what moyes did for him. Perhaps fatherhood really is the magic career/life booster that fergie suggested it would be. Second, did anyone really think rooney would be going anywhere? At no point have I ever thought wayne rooney could handle living in foreign country. Can you imagine him trying to learn spanish or italian? Dont make me laugh! He'd spend the rest of his career looking sweaty and bright red - complaining that his skin is peeling and that everyone he meets is foreign. He is CLEARLY one of those players who would NEVER move abroad successfully. If he leaves united it will be because the club ceases to exist or everton get a billionaire takeover.
