Rooney future still unclear after United meetings
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Wayne Rooney’s future at Manchester United is yet to be determined after meetings were between the club and the striker’s representatives on Thursday.
“The outcome of those meetings will become clear in the near future,” a United statement said. “In the meantime, fans are asked to be patient.”
Some fans staged a protest Thursday night outside Rooney’s home in the village of Prestbury, south of Manchester.
“Police attended the scene and the group dispersed peacefully,” police said. “No offenses were disclosed.”
The Guardian newspaper website reported that one banner read: “If you join City you’re dead.”
Rooney has told United he does not intend to extend his contract beyond the summer of 2012 because he is unhappy at the club’s lack of ambition.
“We are aware that there is intense public and media interest on the club at the moment, but there are no developments of note to report,” United said.
Ferguson confirmed Tuesday that Rooney told the club he wanted to quit Old Trafford, sparking intense media debate and speculation about where the England international’s future lies. That continued when Rooney released a statement Wednesday detailing his concerns with United’s squad strength and claiming he had not been given any assurances by Gill about the club’s future.
After United’s Champions League victory over Bursaspor the same night, Ferguson said he was eager to see the issue resolved because the club did not want it to become a “saga.”
Rooney is currently sidelined with an ankle injury sustained in training on Tuesday.
