Much of the footballing world got very excited last Friday following Wayne Rooney’s quite candid conversation with Manchester United legend Paddy Crerand on MUTV.
There were plenty of interesting nuggets from the Manchester United striker who at the time of recording, had not scored a goal from open play since last March. (Wayne Rooney’s goal v West Brom is here.)
Among the themes touched upon by Rooney were England’s woeful World Cup campaign, his spat with former Manchester United team mate Cristiano Ronaldo during the 2006 World Cup, on almost leaving Old Trafford and his pre-match rituals.
As ever, with an MUTV production, there is a feeling of Pravda about the whole thing but Rooney gets into the chat and does disclose more than we have heard from him at the end of a pretty disastrous year on a personal level.
