Following the departure of Rene Meulensteen yesterday, he was asked by Sky Sports about the current situation with Wayne Rooney.

It appears as though the Dutchman has unsurprisingly sided with Sir Alex Ferguson on this one and accused the player of having his own agenda, although hopes he stays at the club.

“I don’t think Wayne and I were that closely connected,” he said with a laugh. “Wayne has his own agenda, he’s a young player still, in his prime. I hope he stays but its obviously not up to me to decide and whatever he decides to do I wish him all the best.”
