United Lie About Rooney?

United Lie About Rooney?

The independent report into Wayne Rooney's fitness, and the condition of that famous foot appear to completely contradict the opinion that has continued to come out of Old Trafford.

Professors Angus Wallace and Chris Moran were called in to assess the fitness of the England star-man, and could only conclude that Rooney had damaged the spongy bit of bone (bones have spongy bits?)


This goes against what Manchester United claim to be an 'independent opinion' that it was a Metatarsal (what`s wrong with 'foot bone') break that would take longer to heal than Beckhams famous injury before the last world cup.

Rooney has so far stayed tight lipped on this, obviously knowing it's probably best not to publicly criticise Sir Alex, there`s usually only one winner if a player does that! It'll be interesting to see how this one develops. Rumours have it that Wayne is a bit disgruntled with the way it's all gone. Though I for one don't blame the club for trying to protect one of their most valuable 'assets.' Maybe the method they've gone about it was slightly wrong.

The problem is, it's not 100% certain that this story is over at all. I for one am sick of not only the Rooney stories, but those regarding England. At least the proportion between England, and the rest of the tournament!

How can it be boring when he virtually carries the expectations of the nation for the World Cup? We were rocking in the Euro's until he got injured. He also carries our hopes for next season so you can't expect Man Utd not to be nervous of the situation, he was a major investment.

It is boring. His foot is fine, yes bones have spongy bits and even if they didn't it would be healed by now. Believe me i'm a doctor.

It is all rather boring, but i can see Sir Alex's side of things. If Rooney is out for half the premiership season, that could affect Man Utd to the tune of ££££ millions, and in turn A.F. and his job.
