Well, what a strange few days it has been in the world of Wayne Rooney. As I posted earlier in the week, Wayne Rooney publicly came out and said that he was seeking a move away from Manchester United. This led to a flurry of media speculation and response, my personal favourite being Ian Holloway (Blackpool Manager and my Mum's classmate at school)'s rant at Rooney, which can be viewed using the link below:
Anyway, all of this speculation has now been ended in a bizarre turnaround by the England striker, who has today signed a new 5-year contract with Manchester United, with Rooney becoming the highest paid player in United's history earning a reported £180,000 a week.
It will be interesting to see how the season unfolds for Rooney now. Personally, after all that has happened, I hope he has a miserable season and gets the criticism he deserves from United fans, pundits and the media. Throwing your toys out the pram is not only immature, but highly unprofessional. Perhaps Rooney should learn from Steven Gerrard, who seems to suffer in silence as the great player he is watches his beloved team get worse and worse every year.
