Manchester United and Wayne Rooney have been made aware of the theme of an article in tomorrow's Independent newspaper.
We have not seen the detail but can assure all United fans that the Manager and the Club are committed to Wayne Rooney and Wayne is committed to the Manager and the Club.
The player and the Manager have always had and retain the utmost respect for each other and look forward to working together in the coming seasons.
Any suggestion that Manchester United and Wayne Rooney are to part company is complete nonsense.
