DAVID MOYES used his first news con­fer­ence as Manch­ester United man­ager yes­ter­day to de­clare striker Wayne Rooney was “not for sale”.

Rooney's fu­ture has been clouded by un­cer­tainty ever since Moyes's pre­de­ces­sor, Alex Fer­gu­son, said in May the Eng­land striker had asked to leave the club.

But Moyes, who launched Rooney's pro­fes­sional ca­reer at Ever­ton, said the 27 year old still has an im­por­tant role to play at Old Traf­ford.

“Wayne Rooney is not for sale,” Moyes said. “He's a Manch­ester United player and will re­main a Manch­ester United player. I'm look­ing for­ward to work­ing with him.” – Sapa-AFP
