Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has lifted the lid over differences he had with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson following his quit threat in 2013, the Daily Express reports.
The England international sought to leave Old Trafford until he was offered a bumper new deal and has since become the club captain under current boss Louis van Gaal.
However, the 29-year-old has highlighted the differences he went through with Sir Alex, stating that differences between players and managers is common, and he sometimes goes through the same thing with England boss Roy Hodgson.
“I don’t know if anyone knows how things ended,” said Rooney. “I still see Sir Alex quite a bit at games, and he travels away to European games with us. We had differences (of opinion). That’s normal.
“I’m not the only person who had differences with Sir Alex Ferguson, but I can still sit here and say he was the greatest manager of all time.
“Ask Roy: he’s had differences with other players. That’s part of football. I’m not the only person who had differences with Sir Alex Ferguson, but I can still sit here and say he was the greatest manager of all time.
“It’s not that we don’t like each other. We just had differences. That’s normal.”
