Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Wayne Rooney is now an issue for his successor, David Moyes. confirmed after Sunday's match against Swansea that the striker has asked leave to the club and he says it's a matter that will now be dealt with by the new manager.

"I haven't spoken to David about it. I'm sure he'll address it when he gets here," said the Scot.

"I've no idea [why Wayne wants to leave]. It's not my department. I'm no longer interested in that.

"David is going to deal with that and he quite rightly wants to deal with it. I'm happy with that."
