'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - Still Perplexed by the Rooney Situation?

Is he fit, or is he injured?

Still there are mixed messages appearing in the red-top tabloid press.

Wayne Rooney is highly unlikely to feature in the starting eleven against Sunderland this afternoon, with Sir Alex Ferguson remarking,

"Wayne wants to play. In another week he will be fine. It is up to Fabio if he wants to play him. We feel it`s better to wait."

The second half of that quote though would give the implication that Wayne is sort of fit, especially with the England connection.

Rooney though, in some more quotes that have appeared in the tabloid press, appears to hint that he`s been left out, remarking,

"All footballers get left out. I never want to be left out. I want to play every game. But that is the manager`s decision. The best advice for me is to just play."

"When you are not playing at your best, you need to continue playing and doing the simple things. Then your form will come good."

"As a forward you always want to play well and give the manager no excuses to leave you out."

"At a club like Manchester United, there are top players. You want to be at your best to keep that place. If not, the manager has the players there to leave you out."


And the will-power it would seem in some people`s eyes!

In fairness Rooney has been useless and his performances deserved a drop.
