Manchester United No2 Mike Phelan wasn't interested in talking about Wayne Rooney after their draw with West Bromwich Albion.

The Daily Mail says inside the players’ tunnel at Old Trafford on Saturday, the ‘R’ word was pretty much off-limits for those journalists fortunate enough to be invited to interview United staff.

It was suggested that no one from the BBC should broach the Rooney subject or an interview with United’s assistant manager Phelan would be terminated.
