Wayne Rooney has been asked by EA sports to pick his Fantasy XI.

The only United team mate who gets a mention is Nemanja Vidic, with Rooney opting to choose the likes of Micah Richards over Rafael, Ashley Cole over Patrice Evra, and Pepe Reina over Edwin Van der Sar.

Whilst no one would expect someone to pick every player from their own club, a bit of tact here wouldn’t have gone a miss, in light of his recent derogatory comments in relation to ambition.

Pepe Reina (Liverpool)
Michah Richards (Manchester City), Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Ashley Cole (Chelsea)
Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Xavi (Barcelona), Andres Iniesta (Barcelona)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Carlos Tevez (Manchester City).
