A couple of days on from its publication and former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's book is still dominating the agenda.
The Scot's memoirs had opinions on just about everyone bar the Old Trafford postman (note: he might have written about the postman, we've not got there yet), with a word or two dedicated to Wayne Rooney.
It's fair to say that the relationship between the pair soured towards the end of last season. Ferguson stated on a number of occasions that Rooney asked for a transfer late in the campaign.
Rooney has kept his own counsel, but in his own book Ferguson maintained that Rooney wanted away.
He came into my office the day after we won the league and asked away.
He wasn’t happy with being left out for some games and subbed in others. His agent Paul Stretford phoned David Gill with the same message.
Rooney was headline news on Wednesday night after inspiring United to victory over Real Sociedad in the Champions League.
Following the game, he was asked about Ferguson's book, and—per a piece by the Mail's Neil Ashton—thanked the Scot for clearing up the transfer request (without actually clearing it up).
The England international, who turned 28 on Thursday, also revealed that the pair have not met since last season.
Obviously he's (Ferguson) got his own opinion. I've not said nothing and thankfully he's come back and corrected the story that I put a transfer request in.
He's come back and proved that I didn't, so I'm thankful for him for it.
I haven't seen him since he retired so I'm happy under the new management and we're working to get results under David Moyes and his coaching staff.
That's the main thing for me. The other stuff doesn't concern me.
