Sir Alex Ferguson insists Wayne Rooney asked to leave Manchester United last season.

Ferguson also insisted on PBS he never fell out with the England ace.

"He asked away," said Ferguson. "He came in the day after we had won the title. Nothing happened that I would get upset about.

"Wayne is unfortunate in the sense that he is England's big white hope. So therefore, the media is always centred around Wayne.

"And he has people who advise him. And I think that's where all that's coming from.

"I never fell out with him at any time, you know. Sometimes I would discipline him, but sometimes they all need discipline."

Ferguson added: "When the club refused to sell him to Chelsea, he realised his only job was Manchester United. It's brought back his focus.

"It's brought back his work ethic and his purpose, and, you know, he's playing well again.

"So maybe that was a good turning point for the boy. Did it end badly? No, I don't think so.

"I think if Wayne walked in here today, he would shake my hand."
