Man Utd' fans show their anger towards Rooney

Fri 22nd Oct 2010 | Football Club Management

Wayne Rooney’s very public fall out with Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson has brought about ill feeling from the club’s fans who fear he may join rivals Manchester City.

A large group of fans protested outside of his house last night and this morning a large advertising billboard bearing a close up of the young stars face was daubed with graffiti.

‘Join City and you’re Dead’ was splashed across the billboard in the centre of Manchester in an obvious attempt to discourage the move.

United fans, which still bitter about Carlos Tevez’s move across the City will be desperate to see that Rooney does not follow suit. Their anger at his renegade against the club will be compounded should he make the switch.

Rooney revealed earlier this week that he wished to leave Old Trafford as he felt that the club no longer shared his ambitions and felt that under the Glazer’s ownership the club was stagnating.

United’s accounts released last week revealed how the club had made a loss of over £80m despite posting record operating profits of over £100m with the deficit coming from interest payments on the loans used by the Glazers to purchase the club.
