Prem: Lawrenson on Rooney | Setanta

Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson And Wayne Rooney Had Bust-Up, Reveals Lawrenson - Goal.com


Former Liverpool player Mark Lawrenson has claimed Wayne Rooney had a ‘massive row’ with Sir Alex Ferguson before the Fulham game.

Having played the full 90 minutes in the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool, Rooney was left on the bench for the following game against Fulham.

He was introduced as a half-time substitute at Craven Cottage but, as United went down to a 2-0 defeat, the England star was shown two yellow cards and reacted furiously as he left the field.

And Lawrenson, speaking to Radio 5 Live, has now said that Rooney did not start against Fulham due to a training ground row with Ferguson.

According to The Mail on Sunday, Lawrenson said: “Everybody knows he had a massive row with Fergie after the Liverpool game and was then left out.

“It’s an ongoing problem but, if anyone can deal with it, it is Sir Alex.”

Words were exchanged and rumour has it he said something like you are nowhere near as good as carlos, fergie stepped in and dropped him to show support for phelan.

I'm sure arguments break out all the time after horrible losses like the Liverpool one was. It'll blow over and build characters no doubt.

By the way on the subject of Phelan not being as good as Quieroz, did anyone else read that aparently Roberto Mancini rejected the chance to be assistant manager in the summer?

I think that maybe after pursuing Mancini for and missing out, Fergie had little time to pursue anybody else so he appointed somebody 'in house'.

things like this happen more often than we ever know- it shows passion and that all concerned care about united. they have got over it and it will be sorted within house , why some muppet has to make a big thing of it is just typical.

rooney will get his head down again and get on with channelling his agression back into his game rather than let petty frustrations get the better of him.

you wouldn't think we were top of the league would ya??

Could well imagine it. Phelan strikes me as a deer in headlamps at times.

Hopefully, if this is true, Fergie had a little word with Wayne who is ok now... ;)

If that is true, then im with sir alex. Im sure its obvious enough that Phelan cannot be compared to Carlos & Rooney should know that. Its disgusting how players do that, telling them their thoughts is fine just as long as they did it in the right way. But then again, how truthful this is no one knows. Im sure sir alex will handle it well.

This is just Lawrenson talking sh*t, making more out of something that was small..
He's an ex-dipper and he's hoping Fergie will respond to these stupid comments..
Fergie will handle this well i'm sure and laugh it off!!

I did wonder if there was more to the fall-out story than met the eye after he was dropped against Fulham. After all, he wouldn't be the first to have been the receiving end.

But it's hard to judge how much is in it though if it is true. But there's no doubting that Sir Alex can deal with it.
