Irwin backs Moyes over Rooney stance

Denis Irwin is happy to be guided by David Moyes' unequivocal statement that Wayne Rooney is going nowhere after Chelsea saw a bid turned down.

United are adamant they will not sell the unhappy forward and would be willing to wind down the contract which still has two years to run if necessary.

And the former United full-back is happy to take Moyes at his word.

Wayne is a fantastic player. He has been great in the years he has been at the club and has scored a stack of goals for us.

David Moyes is the manager. He makes the decisions. He has said Wayne Rooney is going nowhere. That is good enough for me.

– Denis Irwin
