Fergie Benches Rooney Against Everton

Sir Alex Ferguson decided to put Wayne Rooney on the bench last weekend against his former team, Everton.

Rooney has been the butt of gossip worldwide in the last week due to allegations of an alleged affair with an Internet call girl during his wife’s pregnancy. He was not included in the starting eleven because of the expected jeering the Manchester United superstar would probably receive at Goodison Park.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson refused to comment on the issue claiming that he will discuss behavior on the pitch, but he does not believe in discussing any of the team member's personal lives.

Rooney scored a goal earlier in the week in international play, and is currently one of the best players in Premier League and Champions League competition – and hopefully will soon be back in The Red’s starting eleven.  

Plan ahead to watch Wayne Rooney play and purchase Manchester United tickets for matches including Manchester United v Glasgow Rangers tickets, Rangers v Manchester United tickets, Manchester City v Manchester United tickets, Manchester United v Valencia tickets, and Valencia v Manchester United tickets.
