Wayne Rooney blames Fergie for playing him out of position; Old Rooney tweet states otherwise
Rooney was played in a central midfield role on a handful of occasions during Ferguson’s final season.
The English forward is now blaming his recent unhappiness at the club on not being played up front last season.
This does seem a little strange considering last season he tweeted how much he was enjoying his new central midfield role.
You can’t help but take anything Rooney says with a big old scoop of salt.
Great win today. Really enjoying my new midfield role. Always involved in the game.
