Mystery over Hargreaves exit
Wayne Rooney's outstanding personal campaign also ended in torment, but at least Fergie was able to report that the 24-year-old talisman will be fine for the World Cup. Double PFA and Football Writers' Footballer of the Year, Rooney (below) was subbed after 76 minutes against Stoke and came off wincing with a groin injury. But Ferguson had good news for Capello. "Wayne has aggravated his groin again. I don't think it is serious. He will be OK for England," he reported. But it was double agony for Rooney, who was also voted United players' and fans' Player of the Year last week. He went into the final day of the league campaign level pegging with Chelsea's Didier Drogba on 26 league goals in the race for the Golden Boot. But while Rooney drew a blank in United's 4-0 victory against Stoke, his Ivory Coast rival stormed ahead to steal the personal honour with a hat- trick against Wigan.
