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

Sir Alex WANTED Rooney To Play

England striker Wayne Rooney has rubbished reports that Sir Alex Ferguson was against the player being at the World Cup.

Rooney says quite the opposite despite the rubbish in the papers implying Utd were trying to stop him playing, he says Sir Alex was 'very supportive from day one.'

Rooney said: 'I've spoken to Sir Alex Ferguson a few times. He just wishes me luck. He's been very supportive from day one. He's always wanted me to play in the World Cup and he's really happy for me.'

'Hopefully it will make me a better player for Manchester United because of the experience of playing in a tournament like this.'
