Wayne Rooney congratulates Manchester City

Wayne Rooney has congratulated Manchester City on his Facebook page, for winning their first title in 44 years. The United striker said:

"Congratulations to all involved with Manchester City they have won the best and hardest league in the world and deserve credit for that.

"Still gutted today as any Manchester United team should be, we have given our all but unfortunately we came up short on goal difference alone.

"This season we have had to cope with a number of long term injuries to important players and I think it speaks well for the future that the squad has pushed this title race to the last 60 seconds of the last game of the season."
