If this is from the press conference he was asked if he wants to still be a United player next season and he said of course. What else was he meant to say?
Does this come from the press conference where he was asked something along the lines of "Do you see yourself here next season?", and he replied something to the effect of "I'm focusing on this season, I've been at the club for 13 years, no one knows the future, etc etc, Here? of course".
There's nothing else he can say to be honest, even if he wanted to leave. Doesn't mean much, if anything.
Bit of jostling, maybe something to do with loyalty payments and an exit deal? Not convinced Rooney would be happy with a bench role again. He has many faults, but he's always been desperate to play as many games as he can.
No. We need to get rid of his wage bill, pronto.
Thanks but no thanks.
To be honest, it wouldn't surprise me. Coleen will be having a say in this. She loves being close to her family and her business is all here. Plus the kids are no doubt very settled and very integrated with the extended family.
Can stay, but for FC United of Manchester, not us.
If he said he wanted to leave he would be lambasted for stealing attention from the club's biggest game of the season.
I doubt this changes anything.
Just a click bait misinterpretation of a standard pro answer to a question.
Imagine the stories if he'd answered "nah, i'm on my bike son, to whoever pays the most. Or to Everton, if United will lavish me with £10m up front to make up for the insane contract that mug gave me"
He couldn't afford to move to London, that's for sure. If it's a few hundred for a brasser and the same again for a packet of fags delivered in Manchester, imagine what the poor fecker would pay in the capital. He'd be broke within the month.
As @Sandikan said above. Besides, he's not going to say he wants out for a 3rd time. We all know the score anyway. His time is up and it was 4 years ago at least.
feck off Wayne
And I want to win the lotto but it's unlikely to happen.
Thanks for the service but it's MLS time for you Wayne..
SSN have to get the clicks somehow!
If we take the step up to CL, we will need someone of his level.
Can you imagine how little he'd be playing next season, after another recruitment drive?
it'd be league cup and occasional 3rd sub/home games v relegation candidate material.
Just a media trained footballer answering a question in a way that avoids a media shitstorm.
No thanks and no thanks
"the fans they are singing - Wayne Rooney's army, Wayne Rooney's army"
There should be a separate Rooney subforum on caf.
Of course he couldn't say otherwise. However, I get a sneaky feeling that he's probably not even getting good offers from the MLS. Reckon it's desperation time.
I hope his pride would not allow him to see out his contract on the bench because he hasn't got an offer he considers fits his profile etc..
blessing in the skies?
He can stay but not as a player. Ball boy might be OK.
We are going to find it extremely difficult to offload him and I have a funny feeling that he will hang around to collect the massive wages he is on.
This, the world knows he's finished.
Just read the thread title ...HOLY SHIT NO!!!!
He is on mega-money, he is settled, he won't leave taking a pay-cut. I doubt there is any club out there, including MLS and Chinese leagues, willing to match his current wages. He will see out his contract with us.
I really dont want to see him in our team anymore. he's finished. well, if he is indeed still in United, as long as he is never our starting players or main players and not our captain anymore, I dont care.
Give him the Schweini-treatment. Into the reserves. Either way it is a question of what Rooney value most: Money or his legacy at OT. And as you i fear that he will go for the money.
And we want a fecking unicorn tomorrow.
How about you get into better shape and make sacrifices if the club has to keep you. Work on your set piece delivery, can see him filling in as a squad player for a left side attacking role and 3rd choice center forward. But never in central midfield. He has the worst technical ability and is so predictable as a center mid.
Club captain and one of the highest wage earners has to contribute. Go off with John Terry and United will be better off 100%. As much of a legend he is for United, and he is, we don't have too much time for sympathy and water carriers when it comes to players like him. Didn't have it with Rio, Vida, Evra, etc. Only feck up was not replacing these players with similar talent or talent that was remotely close.
Mou will never ever give Wayne such a treatment, that is what I am absolutely sure of.
If he stays it's hard for the manager etc to just 'ignore him'. He's a distraction even when he's not making a fuss. The best thing is to pay him off and be done with it.
The club needs to play hardball if he decides to hang around. He doesn't keep himself fit for an athlete of his profile anyway, surely his drinking, smoking, not keeping fit means he's committed an implied breach of contract? I don't get it.
Get to feck
Indeed, I also fear noone is that stupid to offer massive wages to him. Maybe we should turn him into a coach, he needs to start getting those coaching badges.
Let's see if Rooney feels like staying when the club brings two strikers and possibly a winger early in the summer.
Separate names with a comma.
