Rooney makes peace with Ronaldo

Wayne Rooney admits he was 'disappointed' by Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo's actions during the controversial World Cup semi-final between England and Portugal but has forgiven him.

Rooney was sent off for stamping on Ricardo Carvalho as Portugal eventually knocked England out on penalties and Ronaldo's provocative behaviour caused outrage in the aftermath of the match.

The Portuguese winger was seen shoving his head into Rooney's before the match and encouraging referee Horacio Elizondo to send the England firebrand off after the Carvalho incident.

Rooney lost his temper and shoved Ronaldo during the furore and though he admitted he was 'disappointed' with his United colleague's behaviour, he was also disappointed it resulted in Ronaldo being denied FIFA's best young player award after the tournament.

'It's fine now. I spoke to him on the night after the game.

'I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed with the way he ran over to the referee.

'But at the end of the day we weren't team-mates that day. We were rivals. I wanted to win, he wanted to win for his country so we have to get on with it and hopefully do well for Manchester United together,' Rooney told Sky Sports News.

'I think he should have won the young player award at the World Cup but because of the criticism he got it was taken away from him.

'I was disappointed for him, I think everyone at the club was disappointed for him. He had a good tournament and I don't think he should have had it taken away for him because of that.'

Rooney also reaffirmed his intention to see out his career at Old Trafford.

'I'm perfectly happy here and looking to sign a new contract,' he said.

'I want to stay at the club, I am happy at the club so there's no reason not to stay.'

Rooney believes Ronaldo can cope with inevitable hostility from fans - he was booed in a friendly at Oxford this week - and come out of it 'a better player'.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: 'It was disappointing to see that happen (at Oxford) because he is a great player.

'I think in the last two years he has been booed at away games anyway and I think it shows how good he is.

'I think he can cope with it well and come out of it a better player.

'He's a good lad and we've got no problem with each other now. We're fine about it.'
