Not everyone is fond of ‘Wazza’

Some feuds seem to go on forever, Ali and Frazier, Blair and Brown, Suarez and half of football.

One feud that shows no signs of abating is the one between Wayne Rooney and Sir Alex Ferguson which actually seems to be growing despite the former United boss’s retirement.

Sir Alex famously claimed Rooney wanted to leave the club and that the striker was “David Moyes’ problem now” when quizzed about him towards the end of the season. Rooney in the meantime has been left in something of a quandary, denying that he handed in a request- a point that could well be true- while remaining tight lipped as to whether he actually wants to remain at the club.

The latest twist in the Rooney/Ferguson saga comes with reports that the striker is unhappy with the former United manager still having a role at the club as he sees it scuppering his chances of rebuilding his reputation and gaining a place in the team.

The Guardian notes:

Wayne Rooney’s belief that Sir Alex Ferguson remains among the key power brokers at Manchester United is a fundamental reason why the striker wants to leave the club.

While Ferguson may actually have no material influence on how David Moyes views Rooney’s value to his squad, it is understood that the forward’s perception is that the former manager will be among the loudest voices at United, despite retiring as manager last season.

News that Sir Alex’s influence is making Rooney more determined to leave will hardly come as a surprise to many Reds as there’s no denying the former boss looms large over the club no matter what capacity he’s filling, but some may feel it’s merely an excuse.

If Rooney really wanted to stay he could try and put whatever happened with Sir Alex behind him, there’s no doubt Ferguson would want to help make David Moyes’ life a lot easier if he could, the question is, will we ever see that happen?

    rooney u are loved by united fans so don’t make them change the love to hatred and don’t b dissived by that fool that call himself the wise one,he has no good intension 4 u because he just want 2 liure u out of ur glory. Beside jose is a confussionist, they say one good turn diserves another so be wise and learn from the Heros past of united and think twice before u make a move that u will live to regrect.

    Rooney is going towards destruction, he has to learn from other reputable strikers that have played for chelsea, how they lost their fames, destinies and career.
    The Dog that will lost will not hear the flute of the hunter, if he insist, let him go, I bet it, he will later cry for help and nobody will help him….

    Myself I would not believe a word Fergie says. Even Gill said that he believes that Rooney did not ask for a transfer. Also when Fergie said he was retiring Gill said that his successor would have to be a successful manager with lots of European experience. So you knew that the manager was not going to be English because Fergie does not do English. Look at all the people he employs in football and MUTV. Whern you look into Fergies mind Moyes was the only one he was going to employ, a man from his home city.
    But I believe Moyes is his own man and will not let Fergie influence him on the Rooney issue. I am glad Fergie has gone he wasa getting past his sell buy date and good riddance I say. This is my own opinion.
