Wayne Rooney Forgiven by Teammate

In a change of heart, Patrice Evra says he has forgiven Wayne Rooney for his actions regarding his contract with Man Utd.

 Evra previously suggested that Man United should sell Rooney because he criticised the club’s ambition.

However Roons was given a warm reception on his return to the team from his time-off in the US, Evra insisted any rift between them in the past is over.

'It was very good to see him back,’ said Evra.

‘We are all going to help him get back to his best and scoring goals for United again.

'With Wayne we don’t talk about the past, we just think about the future.

'And the future is where he will once again become one of the best players in the world.

'What I said was that the most important thing was the team, not Patrice Evra or Wayne Rooney.

'I never said the players were against him. When someone says they don’t trust in the future of United it caused us pain — but it is behind us now.'

Rooney is due to play against the Rangers on Wednesday.

'I’m pleased for him,' said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

'It will settle him down and make him realise he is at the club.

'There is no doubt about that. He’ll play against Rangers. It’ll be the perfect environment in which to get 90 minutes.’
