London, Aug 29: Troubled Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has thanked his fans for their ‘unbelievable’ support during the Premier League clash against Chelsea, which has pursued him all summer.
Rooney’s latest move comes on the heels of his reported acceptance on staying in the Old Trafford side this summer and agreeing not to push the issue any further this week with a transfer request.
According to the Daily Express, after the England striker was cheered throughout Monday’s home draw with Chelsea, he posted on his Facebook page, expressing his gratitude to his fans and saying that their support means a lot to him.
Rooney has privately responded to Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s ultimatum to make clear his intentions within ’24-48 hours’ by accepting to stay on at United, with the transfer window closing on Monday night.
Rooney is aware that United boss David Moyes, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the club’s owners the Glazers agree on the fact that he will not be sold to Chelsea at any price this week despite having only two years left on his contract, for which he hesitated to burn his bridges by pushing hard for a transfer.
