United Legends Have Their Say!

United Legends Have Their Say!

Many tabloid hacks are of the view that, considering recent events, Wayne Rooney could well have played his final game for Manchester United.

Currently on the sidelines, for a rumoured ten days, courtesy of a Paul Scholes tackle in training, the inference that the rift is too deep too heel leads many to suspect that we`ll not see Rooney selected again whilst Sir Alex Ferguson is in charge.

Naturally, the media continue to delve into the darkest corners to try and keep the frenzy going and what better way to do so than to gather some quotes from a couple of Manchester United legends in Sammy McIroy and Paul Ince.

McIlroy, still managing at a lower level of football but a guy whose views are well respected, had this to say to a selected member of the media world,

"Wayne Rooney has been an absolute idol over the past few years for Manchester United fans."

"If Wayne thinks he`s in a bit of a goldfish bowl at the moment, if he goes across town it will be even bigger."

"Maybe Wayne thinks he needs a change, but to go just across the town, he could be in for a rough ride."

"There will be a lot of United fans hoping he changes his mind and Sir Alex will be hoping he changes his mind as well but these days money talks."


Some interesting thoughts there, especially about the intensity of being under the media eye increasing if he were to jump aboard the Eastlands glory boat.

Ince though, on the other hand, appears to be promoting a move abroad indicating it could be the making of Rooney and relating his situation, all those years ago, to that of his own, when he remarks,

"With all the off-field antics going on it has all come down on him at once."

"Maybe he feels that the best thing for him to do now is to move on and got to another country and start a new life."

"When I left Manchester United for Inter Milan it was the best thing I could have done, to be away from everyone and concentrate on my family and football. Maybe Wayne`s thinking that."


Here at Vital Manchester United we can`t help thinking that Wayne`s domestic situation doesn`t align with a move to the continent, thereby placing City in pole position.

Anyone out there care to agree or disagree?

I think a move abroad is more likely just so he can get away from the British media.
