Fergie axes Wayne after new transfer request

Fergie axes Wayne after new transfer request

Alex Ferguson axed Wayne Rooney from his Old Trafford farewell then ordered the striker to sort his head out.

Rooney was left to watch Manchester United's 2-1 win over Swansea from his private box after asking to quit the club for a second time.

He was then booed by a section of fans when he went up to get his medal after the game.

And Ferguson said: "I don't think Wayne was keen to play simply because he has asked for a transfer.

"He's asked for a transfer, we refused it. And that is where it lies.

"It was better he didn't play. He can think it over, mull it over.

"He's not happy. He's been taken off a few times but Wayne in top form would not be taken off.

"He should think about his future here, because it will be here."

Fergie marked his final home match as Man United boss by lifting the Premier League trophy on behalf of his team

But when he was asked in a separate interview whether Rooney would be staying, Ferguson said: "It's not my decision now."

Rooney asked for the transfer two weeks ago in a showdown with the boss.



He has been unhappy at being axed, subbed and played out of position.

His exclusion from the second leg of United's Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid was the biggest blow to the player.

But there have clearly been problems between Rooney and Ferguson for a lot of this season.

And while there was an embrace for each of his players as they got their champions' medals yesterday Rooney got just a handshake and a pat on the back from Fergie.

United legend and Sky pundit Gary Neville says Rooney needs to take a holiday and think about what he could be throwing away by leaving Trafford.

Neville said: "He has not been himself these last couple of months.

"You can see there is something wrong, he wears his heart on his sleeve. He's 27, there is nowhere to go from here, believe me. I've seen players join Real Madrid and other great clubs and they always want to come back here."

Former United striker Dwight Yorke believes incoming manager David Moyes needs to put his arm around Rooney and show him he is loved if the player is going to stay.

When Rooney's latest attempt to quit United was made public there was an angry reaction from fans who have never truly forgiven him for trying to leave in 2010, claiming the club lacked ambition.

The club as well as Rooney has a big decision to make now.

They would listen to offers of £25million unless Moyes insists he stays. But that is by no means certain.
