Sir Alex Ferguson happy to see Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney playing well

Wayne Rooney’s future at United was the subject of much speculation and uncertainty over the summer after Ferguson claimed towards the end of last season that the 27-year-old had asked to leave the club.

Though Ferguson has now retired as manager of Utd, his presence at Old Trafford as a director has reportedly kept a question mark hanging over Rooney’s long-term future.

He was a target for Chelsea in the transfer window, but United stood firm and refused to sell the England international to their Premier League rivals.

Ferguson’s successor David Moyes has been happy with Rooney’s early-season form and labelled the forward ‘world class’ after he scored twice in Tuesday’s 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Rooney’s brace in the UEFA Champions League took his tally to 200 goals for United and Ferguson is also happy with how his former player is performing.

“Wayne was fantastic. I’m pleased to see that. He’s got his energy back, his purpose to attack. As a director, I’m delighted to see him back to how we remember him.”

“Wayne was fantastic,” Ferguson told MUTV. “I’m pleased to see that. He’s got his energy back, his purpose to attack.

“As a director, I’m delighted to see him back to how we remember him.”

Ferguson added: “What is important and key to the team is if Vida (Nemanja Vidic) stays fit. With Van Persie and Rooney, there are forwards that can win games, Valencia’s back to his best and it’s amazing how a shirt number can affect a player.

“De Gea’s maturing, Evra was normal and Carrick is continuing from last season. There were lots of plus points.”

Ferguson has also defended Moyes after his fellow Scot came in for criticism following United’s 1-0 defeat at Liverpool earlier this month.

Moyes had earlier enjoyed a 4-1 success at Swansea in his first Premier League game before a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace last Saturday secured his first home win as United manager.

 

David Moyes says world class players, like Wayne Rooney, are vital for a team to win the Champions League.

 

“I loved the Swansea game, enjoyed Saturday and Tuesday,” continued Ferguson. “I enjoyed the Swansea game, United were terrific, but the Liverpool game was agony. I spoke to David about this after the Liverpool game.

“We’ve gone there over the years, 20-odd times, and played worse than that and won games, and I can’t believe the criticism of United in that game.

“I thought David was right. They played well, could have done with a goal, but in the context of my experience of going to Liverpool, I can’t remember when they hardly got in our box. I was frustrated with that because we deserved more.”

The 71-year-old also remains convinced that he made the right decision to retire at the end of last season after over 26 years of unprecedented success as United boss.

 

He said of retirement: “I’ve enjoyed it. Obviously some things you miss and some you don’t. You miss the banter in the dressing room and the humour on the training pitch, and the relationships built up over long periods with so many of the coaching staff.

“Some things you don’t miss – press conferences on a Friday played over and over again for the whole day.

“I’ve relaxed about retiring and I left at the right time. It was a great period of my life at United.”

Ferguson also denied suggestions he may have had influence over referees during his career after former official Mark Halsey referred to having a “good relationship” with the ex-Red Devils manager.

England and Tottenham defender Kyle Walker issues apology after ‘legal high’

Kyle Walker issues an apology after reports emerged over the weekend that he had taken a ‘legal high’.

Kyle Walker, Tottenham defender who is currently with England on World Cup qualifying duty, was the subject of front page headlines on Sunday after photographs emerged of him taking the ‘legal high’ nitrous oxide.

The incident took place in his hometown city of Sheffield during a night out this summer, and Walker was quick to issue a statement apologizing.

“Apologies for not commenting sooner on a story about me today. I’ve been training and am focused on Tuesday’s game for England,” he said via his Twitter account.

“I won’t be doing this again and hope that no one else is influenced into putting their health at risk by my actions.”

“Now I know the health risks, it was poor judgement on my part.”

“I won’t be doing this again and hope that no one else is influenced into putting their health at risk by my actions.”

Walker was named as the PFA’s Young Player of the Year in 2012 and has won seven caps for England since making his debut against Spain in 2011.

 

Clever Bets Review

We at Clever Bets believe that this whole situation is ridiculous and it should not be a public matter whatsoever. For this to become a main headline in papers and major sporting outlets really demonstrates how footballers have no room to breathe in this current society. They are unable to party in a legal manner with friends without making the headlines for inhaling from a balloon. Spurs defender Kyle Walker is another example of the ‘role model curse’.

The secret behind winning football bets

The Football Betting Myth? Winning Football Bets.

Making money on something you love to watch. Watching football and raking in the profits. We all love winning football bets but what is the secret to actually winning? If you watch football so much you would assume it’s easy to make easy money, right? The answer is no! In a research study we found that 9 out of 10 football fans that watch over 180 minutes of football per week tend to lose more money than they win when betting. Also most of these think they are winning money even though they’re not.
