MOST COMMENTED

Is Wayne Rooney still unhappy at Manchester United? The England striker gave a particularly testy interview with ITV following United’s 4-2 win against Bayer Leverkusen in its UEFA Champions League opener at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Following his Man-of-the-Match performance in which he scored twice and assisted Antonio Valencia for United’s fourth, Rooney declined to answer whether he is now happy at United after all the speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea this summer.

"Listen, I'm concentrating on my football as I have done all summer," the 27-year-old said. "I've put my head down, worked hard to get myself fit for the season. I'm pleased with the way I have come back and delighted that I am scoring goals." When questioned further on whether he had asked for a move, he snapped back: "Listen, I've just told you, I am concentrating on my football which I've been doing all summer."

Rooney’s brace made him the fourth Manchester United player to reach 200 goals for the club. Teammate Robin van Persie, who scored United’s second goal versus Bayer, endorsed Rooney’s reacceptance into the team following his protracted transfer saga. "I love to play alongside Wayne," the Dutchman said. "He has a bit of everything. He can go up front, he can play in behind. He can play the short game and the longer game."
