Alex Ferguson: Wayne Rooney stays put

Sir Alex Ferguson has moved to deny speculation that Wayne Rooney will be moved on by insisting the striker will be at Manchester United next season.
After he was snubbed from Manchester United's Champions League exit to Real Madrid, the cracks between Wayne Rooney and Alex Ferguson appear to be widening.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has dismissed speculation that Wayne Rooney could leave the club at the end of the season.

Rooney was on the bench for Tuesday's Champions League match against Real Madrid, sparking stories in the British media that the England striker may be sold.

However, Ferguson says that Rooney "will be here next year, you have my word on that."

Ferguson says there is "no issue between myself and Wayne Rooney -- to suggest we don't talk is nonsense." He maintained his decision to leave the striker out against Madrid was tactical.

Ferguson says Rooney will be involved in United's FA Cup quarterfinal match against Chelsea on Sunday.
