The Man United forward told some reporter that the reason he fell out with his old boss was because he wanted to play upfront and score all of the goals:
I feel the same way Wayne. Just a year ago I was working in retail selling things to people I hate and I said "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" and so I walked out of that job and I felt free. And now, only several months later, my neighbour has discovered that I have been living in his attic this whole time"I got told to play in midfield and I didn't want to," said Rooney."I just think there had to come a point when, for my own career, I had to be a bit selfish really."
