ROONEY BACKS GIGGS

Wayne Rooney reckons that Ryan Giggs is a suitable man to be appointed as the next Red Devils manager.

Giggs is currently in charge at Old Trafford, but, only temporarily as the Manchester United board is believed to be looking for an experienced man for the job.

However, United’s start under Giggs was brilliant yesterday as they thrashed Norwich City by 4-0 with Rooney and Mata scoring a couple of goals each.

6TH HOME DEFEAT

Manchester United suffered their 6th home defeat when playing against Manchester City and when the match concluded, Wayne Rooney went on saying that one of the reasons on why things have taken such a turn in this season is because the opposition they face in Old Trafford are simply not scared of playing anymore.

MATA BRINGS HOPE

Juan Mata’s arrival to Manchester United has not only given the fans of the club a glimpse of hope that Moyes might just be able to finish this Premier League campaign in the top 5 spots and hopefully secure a spot in the Champions League of the next season.

Unfortunately for Manchester United, Juan Mata’s introduction at the club has not made the initial spark that everyone was wishing for. During the 1st match that Van Persie, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney played together in the same starting lineup for David Moyes, they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Stoke City.

ROONEY OUT

A recurrent groin strain forced Wayne Rooney on sitting out during Manchester United’s match against Norwich City and despite having neither Wayne Rooney nor Robin van Persie available for David Moyes, they still managed to claim a triumph over Norwich without having their star forwards.

It is believed that Moyes also asked the medical staff of the team to speed up the recovery with the Dutchman van Persie and while the injury of Rooney would be better off with the English forward resting for a few weeks, Moyes wants him to be back against Tottenham on the 1st of January of 2014.

MOYES BACKS ROO

The manager of Manchester United, David Moyes, has said that Wayne Rooney will eventually be able to become the all time leading goal scorer for Manchester United and England.

Currently, Sir Bobby Charlton holds both those records, but, Rooney is pretty close to him.

Sir Bobby scored a total of 249 goals for Manchester United, Rooney has already got 202. As far as international football is concerned, Rooney’s strike in England’s last World Cup qualifying game against Poland took his goal tally to 38 and now, he is only 11 goals behind Sir Bobby.

Fans to decide Wayne Rooney future

England striker Wayne Rooney will decide his future at Manchester United by assessing the reaction of the home fans. The England talisman, who has been linked with a move away from the club throughout the summer, will leave it to the fans and the kind of reaction he gets from them in the next two matches before deciding whether to quit the club for greener pastures.

Mourinho calm over pursuit of Wayne Rooney

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expressed his satisfaction after his side hammered a select Indonesia XI 8-1 with almost none of his first team players on show on Thursday.

Following the win, Chelsea will return to London for the remainder of their pre-season training with no new development on their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney for whom the Blues have already had a bid rejected, believed to be around £ 20 million.

RUMOURS SURFACE AGAIN

The rumours linking star striker Wayne Rooney with a move away from Old Trafford have featured once again after the French club Paris St Germain admitted that the 27-year-old is one of the best in the world.

UNITED THROUGH

Manchester United has defeated Reading FC in a FA Cup match played at Old Trafford on Tuesday. United won the match by 2-1. With this victory, United made its way into the sixth round of the tournament.

United got a very good start in the match and could have taken the lead pretty early in the match, but, Chicharito’s flat shot was blocked by the Reading goalkeeper. United still had chance on the rebound, but, Danny Welbeck missed the opportunity.

STILL TWO WEEKS AWAY

The manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, has said that Wayne Rooney will have to remain out of action for two more weeks as he has still not recovered from the knee injury that he had discovered while participating in the training session on Christmas Day.

It means that Rooney will miss United’s Premier League match against Liverpool which will be played on 13th of January.

Rooney has already missed three matches because of his knee injury and Ferguson’s statement suggests that he will have to miss a few more games.
