The Daily Mail have reported on the first official press conference of Manchester United’s new boss David Moyes at Old Trafford and have noted that he is firm about the fact Wayne Rooney will not be going anywhere this summer.
Moyes noted that the forward would be staying at the club – a fact that took up a huge deal of time at the conference with the new manager being asked about the future of the 27-year-old only four questions in.
The former Everton manager noted: “Wayne is not for sale,’ he said. ‘He’s a Manchester United player and he will remain a Manchester United player.
“We have spoken several times. Whatever happened before with Wayne we are working together now. I’ve seen a glint in his eye, he looks happy and he looks like he is going to knuckle down. I’m looking forward to working with him and he won’t be for sale.
“There was a private meeting between Wayne and Sir Alex. I am moving on now. I don’t know what was said in that private meeting. As far as I am concerned, I am looking forward to getting Wayne Rooney to the right level.
“He has come back in good shape and he’s excellent in the training sessions.”
Moyes also expressed his delight at working with Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville, both of whom have joined his coaching staff at Old Trafford.
Will Rooney now knuckle down and enjoy a prosperous 2013/14 season? Is this even the end of the saga? Let us know your thoughts below.
