Wayne Rooney says he never submitted a transfer request in 2013 despite what former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson claims.
The United striker endured an up and down relationship with Ferguson and reportedly was close to leaving the club in 2010 and 2013.
“I went in to see him (Ferguson) and just said ‘if you are not going to play me then it might be better for me to move on’,” he states in the BBC documentary to mark him becoming England’s all-time top goalscorer.
“Then, all of a sudden, it was all over the press that I had put a transfer request in which I never did. I don’t know what happened, why that came out that way.”
