United - Fletcher Has His Say!

United - Fletcher Has His Say!

Okay, the waters may still be muddy and we`re no nearer getting a solution to the Rooney saga.

Instead of putting it to be early it looks, after talks yesterday, as if this one will drag on and on, well at least for a couple of weeks or so.

But, slowly but surely, the tabloid press are enticing the playing staff, at Old Trafford, to come out with some quotes about how they feel about the situation.

One player, our Scottish midfield international Darren Fletcher, has been particularly expressive and appears to have answered the questions, quite eloquently, when he`s quoted as having remarked about Rooney`s decision to leave and the reasons he supposedly gave.

First up, Darren talks about Rooney`s decision to leave and the way forward explaining,

"It is just as much as shock to us as it is to everyone else. I think everyone is disappointed because we love Wayne as a team-mate and have so much respect for the manager."

"It is going to be difficult but all we can do is try and win games."

"I believe the players in the dressing room are good enough to take us forward."

"I watch them in training every day and we have got some young exciting players. When someone leaves someone always steps up to the mark."


Continuing, Fletcher aims an arrow at those reasons Rooney gave for wanting to leave, remarking,

"I like to think this is still the biggest club. What makes big club is history. Clubs can make money but this clubs history drives us forward."

"It has a great heritage of bringing through young players and what it has achieved in the past together with its fan base makes it the biggest club."

"I think we have spent money. Other teams have ridiculous amounts and will spend it and if you do that and sign big players you will improve."

"But maybe it takes a bit longer to get a team spirit and understanding of the way you play. Manchester United have got that."


Great to see Darren still has the pride in the club that has seen us become one of the greatest clubs in the world. Shame someone else doesn`t feel that way isn`t it!

It`ll be interesting to see how things develop though now that news that Rooney has done a u-turn and signed a five year deal has become public knowledge!

Here's a thought if Rooney wants big names that badly why don't take a wage cut which will enable us to them? Oh no i'm being silly he would never do it at his on expense.
