The image above is the Red Issue front cover to be sold at the FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford tomorrow between Manchester United and Chelsea.
Predictably, Sir Alex Ferguson dropping Wayne Rooney for the Champions League round 16 second leg with Real Madrid has dominated the back pages ever since Manchester United’s exit.
Of course, it was in October 2010 that Wayne Rooney announced he wanted to leave Old Trafford, before he dramatically signed a new deal just two days later.
Rooney said at the time: “For me it’s all about winning trophies – as the club has always done under Sir Alex. Because of that I think the questions I was asking were justified.”
It will be intriguing to see how Wayne Rooney is welcomed by Manchester United fans on Sunday with Ferguson rubbishing the rumours during his press conference on Friday.
