Wayne Rooney’s representatives have confirmed that the forward has submitted a transfer request to leave the England National Team.
Everton Manchester United PSG Chelsea Manchester United player released a statement following England’s completely unexpected exit from the 2014 FIFA World Cup, revealing it was finally time to move on.
The statement read: “I met with Greg Dyke [chairman of the Football Association (FA)] last week and he did not give me any of the assurances I was seeking about the future squad.”
The 28-year-old is thought to have doubts about his side’s ambition, and ability to compete alongside such footballing powerhouses as Columbia, USA, or Costa Rica, who all surpassed England’s progress at the summer tournament.
Sources close to Rooney have said the forward thinks it is completely unacceptable that the management is wasting its time with overhyped youngsters like Jack Wilshere and Raheem Sterling, while some of England’s finest, such as Kieran Richardson, Jermaine Pennant, and Joey Barton, are snubbed time after time.
The statement continued: “I will continue to play with my club Manchester Ci-United for a few months before reaching my final decision, but it’s looking likely that I will move to Central Europe, or even South America. I hear Uruguay may have an opening.”
Roy Hodgson was not able to comment since his face was firmly embedded in his palm.
