Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has hailed manager Sir Alex Ferguson as the best ever manager in the world, not just in British football and has reiterated his desire to finish his career at the club and would love it if the fiery Scot was there till the end of his football career.
The England international striker also added that too much was being made in the tabloid about his rift with the Tartan born manager and reassured the fans of the club that he still respects the manager and is committed to the cause of the club like before.
It was reported in the media recently that Rooney was angry at being dropped by the manager over alleged pictures of him partying with some teammates on Boxing Day for the New Year’s Eve fixture against Blackburn Rovers, a match that The Red Devils lost 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney said that he definitely was angry at being dropped by the manager for the game as no professional likes to sit in the stands when fully fit but also added that he did not hold any grudges against the Scotsman. Rooney commented that he was aware of Sir Alex’s fiery nature and said that although it surprised him, he was not entirely shocked.
Rooney went on to add that the Scotsman is like a father to him and he was the main reason that he swapped the blue of boyhood club Everton for the red of Manchester United as an 18 year old in 2004.
Wayne Rooney further added that he is still in awe of the commitment of the manager, who, in spite of winning everything still has the desire to carry on winning and believes that young managers would do good if they could learn from the great man.
