Vidic: Why would Rooney want to leave best club in the world?

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Manchester United v Aston Villa - Old TraffordNemanja Vidic has questioned why Wayne Rooney would want to leave Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, amidst speculation the player is keen to join last season’s third best team, Chelsea.

Vidic has regularly been linked with a move away from the club but to his credit, his agent always immediately dismisses the rumours. The United captain hopes that Rooney’s story repeats his own.

“I believe Man United is the biggest club in the world and I think there’s no point to go anywhere (else),” Vidic said. “There’s so much speculation, so much talk about whether he’ll leave or stay. He’s at the best club in the world. I have to say the last four years I was in that position as well. People were talking about me leaving the club. I’m still here and I’m enjoying playing for this club. Nothing has changed.”

    Red Khalistan. I don’t know pal, he isn’t a legend. That’s what baffles me the most. He would have been but seemed intent on fucking it up. Hated by Everton fans and disliked by United fans especially if he goes to Chelsea but for what it’s worth I don’t think he will. We won’t sell to them.

    Hey I was laughing with you, not at you. Epic banter here. Pissing myself at the Kirpan comment. Classic.

    I’m with Red Khalistan (not on his religious or racial bigotry haha) on his views on Rooney. If it wasn’t for Tevez’s “RIP Fergie” thing Rooney would be head and shoulders the biggest cunt ever to disgrace the red shirt in my eyes. Right now it’s touch and go with him and Tevez. Don’t care how many goals he’s scored for us, he can never be considered a United legend.

    @ – go support Coventry, about your level.

    @ Ricky147Redman – exactly. Noel Gallagher said it, Rooney is a scouser, he hates United. It means nothing to him to play for the Club. Nothing.

    Didn’t want to get into all this on the night of a win, but people backing Rooney after wot he has done is madness! Have some respect for your Club. United made him, paid him, treated him well, what did we get? OK am done with this. Cunt is not worth discussing. Time to meet lads for beers. Good win Moyes lad. Nice one. Now give Swansea a kicking.

    Red Khalistan. Oh Danny will be top drawer. Just keeps working hard at his game and is improving all the
    time. Great touch and just skips past players. Did well again today. It’s frightening to think how good he CAN be when he’s 25, 26.

    As far Wayne Rooney remains a United player I will give him some level of respect. I respect he has been at the club for a while and maybe growing tired of the same surroundings…he might want to challenge himself elsewhere, but there is a quiet and decent way of doing things like this without bringing ridicule to yourself and this great club.

    He is a top player, numbers don’t lie. His energy and drive was missing last campaign, always played like he was sort of jaded. He was visibly not fit and visibly ticked about shunted from one position to another. He cried for another marquee player to take the load off and Fergie (cheekily) brought in the league’s best frontman. Which effectively meant he had to give up the ST position when we weren’t setup in a 4-4-2.

    He was given assurances that the club would strengthen the squad…and they did. So either work hard and compete, or shut your agents up and wait for a bid United can accept on their own terms.
