There had been questions over Rooney’s future in the last few weeks, especially after he was fined a week wages and dropped for the loss against Blackburn following a poor showing in training after a night out with his partner.
But Rooney quashed these rumours and speaking to The Sun, the striker paid homage to his manager saying:
“Sir Alex is the greatest manager of all time.
“Of course I would like to play under him for the rest of my career.
“He’s a great manager and is a big reason why I joined Manchester United. If I could finish my career playing under Sir Alex then I won’t have gone far wrong.”
“He is, in my eyes, the best ever.
“His success and his trophies speak for themselves. He’s an incredible manager and has done so much for football and so much for my game as well.
“His every-day commitment to his job is what makes him stand out. He’s in before the players every morning and leaves after you. His commitment, his desire to win and his dedication is incredible.”
