Rooney pledges loyalty to Ferguson

WAYNE ROONEY has restated his commitment to Manchester United by |claiming that he wants to see out his career under Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

After a very difficult few days for Rooney, when the player and his employers were forced to come out and state that he was not about to be sold due to a rift with Ferguson, the former Everton man is all smiles as he insists that he wants the Scot to be his long-term manager.

“Alex is the greatest manager of all time. Of course I would like to play under him for the rest of my career,” said Rooney.

“He's a great manager and is a big reason why I joined Manchester United. If I could finish my career playing under Sir Alex then I won't have gone far wrong.

“As I said before he is, in my eyes, the best ever.”

Rooney also insisted that he did not attempt to influence the referee and have |Manchester City man Vincent Kompany sent off during |Sunday's controversial FA Cup victory.

“I didn't wave any imaginary card,” said Rooney.

“I clearly pointed out, as other players did, that it was a two-footed tackle. It was down to the ref to send him off.”
