United - The Hottest Topic Out There!

The views from two of the best bosses in the Premier League on the Rooney saga!

Sat watching Sky Sports excellent continued coverage of the Champions League last night you couldn`t help but notice that whatever game was the focus of their attention somebody just had to ask the participating English managers for their views on the Rooney situation.

Carlo Ancelotti remained very diplomatic about affairs simply remarking,

"I don`t want other coaches talking about my players and I have a lot of respect for Manchester United and their manager Alex Ferguson that prevents me from discussing Rooney`s situation."

I say diplomatic because Chelsea are, off course, one of the teams linked with a possible move for Rooney.

Arsene Wenger, on the other hand, was far more open about the saga and took the time to completely rule-out any move for Rooney, although that`s not too surprising considering Arsenal are very prudent when it comes to financial outlay with the Frenchman commenting with a modicum of humour,

"Has somebody opened the transfer window?

"We are not in the transfer market at the moment and we are not interested in buying anybody. We have plenty of players."

"It`s a story I`m happy to read in the newspapers but I`m happy to keep out of it. That means we are not buying anybody, we have enough strikers."

Although Arsene neglected to say that the majority of those are injury prone!

I can't imagine Rooney fitting in either teams game plan being honest.
