Alex Ferguson London, Nov.1 (ANI): Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson believes his star striker Wayne Rooney has been a troubled soul.

Rooney has gone from Player of the Year to a flop for England and Manchester United and a figure of shame for his reported dalliance with a prostitute, The Sun reports.

Ferguson said: “I don’t know the reason for his loss of form because it started in the World Cup. Whether some clubs have been filling his head in that period to affect him we don’t know. The important thing is for us to put it behind us. But certainly something has been troubling him.”

Ferguson believes the weight of feeling against Rooney forced a U-turn as he finally signed a new five-year contract worth 250,000-pounds-a-week.

Ferguson said: “Nobody enjoys that sort of attention. When he saw the impact his decision made it took him aback and he had a rethink.” (ANI)
