Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has dismissed reports he has had another bust-up with manager Sir Alex Ferguson and said he is fully committed to the club.

The newspapers reported the 25-year-old would be sold in the summer after questioning the ability of the squad.

In October, Rooney said he wanted to leave Old Trafford as was fed up of carrying the team.

Ferguson managed to change his mind, and the England international signed a new contract.

But Rooney has denied the latest rumours claiming his relationship with his boss is as strong as ever, and looks to finish his career at United.

“I saw that (the rumours), but I’ve never seen such rubbish in my life,” he said.

“My relationship with Sir Alex has no problems whatsoever.

“I’m enjoying my football here and if I was going to leave in the summer I wouldn’t have signed a new contract when I did.

“I’ve signed it and I intend to see it through to the end.

“You get angry when people question you. On Sunday I was on the way home from training. I stopped off at the garage to get petrol and a few people asked me if I was leaving in the summer.

“I didn’t know where it had come from. I said, ‘Where did you hear that?’ and he said it was in the newspapers. But I’ll be here until I’m well into my 30s.

“I signed a new contract to stay here and unless I’m ever not wanted then I’ll be staying here, that’s for sure.

“I admit I made a mistake like I’ve said lots of times, by saying I wanted to leave, but I’ve committed my future to United and I’m happy and my family are happy so there’s no reason for me to move elsewhere.

“I want to try and win more trophies and bring more success to this club.”
