Sir Alex Ferguson gets in a dig at the FA after point out how often Wayne Rooney is used to do all the press for England.

Our manager is famous for wanting to lower the profile of his young stars but this doesn’t seem to be a method the FA are familiar with.

“Every time England go on a trip, who gets on the television? Wayne Rooney. Every blinking time!” said Ferguson. “He must get bored answering the same questions, but that’s because of his sponsors and the FA. They love that kind of thing. But it’s not fair on the same player continually having to go on television and do the Press.”
