Wayne Rooney Left Out
Sir Alex Ferguson has left Wayne Rooney, who has scored just once in the league this campaign, out for the Champions League game against Valencia on Wednesday. Struggling under intense media pressure following explosive revelations about his private life, he gave a mediocre performance against Bolton Wanderers last Sunday and was replaced by Federico Macheda in the 61st minute of the game after receiving a knock to his left ankle.
Kevin Keegan: “Wayne Rooney´s performance against Bolton Wanderers on Sunday tells me his confidence is shot. It’s just one tap and I know from when I played that if you are advertising boots and all these things, you have to go and make appearances. You are going to appear in the paper. But the one thing I would like to say is keep your home and your family out of it and just take your endorsements if that’s what you want to do.
