Wayne Rooney is upsetting his senior Manchester United teammates.

Rooney has pulled out of their clash at AIK tonight due to injury amid talk of a move to Chelsea.

The Mirror says tensions are running high within the United squad, with senior players such as Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra expressing their anger at the way the situation has developed.

And it seems all parties believed it was wise not to ask Rooney to take part in Tuesday’s match, given the convenience of a minor injury, when there is so much unrest between him and the rest of the players.

Sources close to the Old Trafford club have explained there is an increasing antagonism towards the England striker, with senior players “unhappy” at his stance, which they see as a blatant attempt to strengthen his own position without any regard for the unsettling effect it is having on the team.
