Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed they've rejected a transfer request from Wayne Rooney. Ferguson, taking charge of United for the final time at Old Trafford before retiring, dropped a bombshell by leaving Rooney out of the matchday squad.
And later he gave his reasons, telling Sky Sports: "I don't think Wayne was keen to play simply because he had asked for a transfer.
"He wants to think it through in his mind, which is a good idea."
"We are not going to let him go but he is a little bit frustrated at being taken off once or twice in the last few weeks."
