Man United ask fans to be patient over Rooney’s future
Manchester: Manchester United have called for supporters to be patient after a series of meetings over Wayne Rooney’s future at Old Trafford on Thursday.
Manager Alex Ferguson met with chief executive David Gill and Rooney’s representatives after the England striker confirmed on Wednesday that he wanted to leave the club.
“...a number of meetings have taken place today (Thursday), including with the player’s representative. The outcome of those meetings will become clear in the near future,” United said in a statement on the club website.
“In the meantime, fans are asked to be patient.”
Rooney issued a statement on Wednesday saying he wanted to leave the Premier League club because of their lack of clout in the transfer market, a day after Ferguson had spoken of his shock at the player’s decision.
