Wayne Rooney is "angry and confused" over David Moyes' apparent comments that he sees the striker as back-up to Robin van Persie, according to Press Association sources.

The 27-year-old has no intention of playing second fiddle to last season's top scorer van Persie or being reduced to the rank of a squad player.
Rooney was sent home from the club's pre-season tour in Thailand after suffering from a hamstring injury.
