Wayne Rooney failed to escape Old Trafford this summer and, though he might suggest he is not bothered, it was not the first time he had made noises about leaving.
His desire to be the focal point of a strike force will not be met regularly, unless Robin van Persie should sustain a severe injury.
As this picture suggests then, Rooney could be in for a spell of suffering under new boss David Moyes.
Only the player himself can turn things around. For Manchester United‘s sake, and for England’s no less, football fans up and down the country will be hoping that he will.
