Rooney responds to Twitter speculation

Should Man United fight to keep their wantaway striker? Robbie Earle has his say.

Wayne Rooney has responded to speculation about his Twitter biography via a statement released on his official website.

There have been reports that Rooney, 27, handed in a transfer request at United after becoming unhappy with his role at the club. However, a United spokesperson attempted to quell the rumours by saying the striker wasn't for sale.

Rooney has now clarified that Manchester United's name has never been on his Twitter account and confirmed that he added the name of Nike several weeks ago, contrary to various stories.

He said: "There's a load of rubbish being written about me changing twitter bio saying I have deleted Manchester United from it.

"I have never deleted Manchester United from the bio whatever the papers are saying because it was never on there.

"All that happened was that I was asked by Nike to add @nikeuk to it – the same as many other sportspeople they sponsor.

"Funny, no-one's written about that though!

"That change was made THREE weeks ago and yet people are talking about it as if its something that was put up yesterday."

In the same statement, Nike added: "A spokesperson for Nike confirmed: In April, we asked Wayne Rooney and other Nike sponsored athletes to add @nikeuk on to their profiles due to changes in ASA guidelines relating to athletes and social media."
