Rio glad to see Rooney`s future resolved

22 October 2010 07:30
Rio Ferdinand has commended Manchester United for resolving its differences with Wayne Rooney and told the striker not to worry about Sir Alex Ferguson's transfer policy. Rooney looked set to leave Old Trafford after statements issued by both himself and Ferguson confirmed speculation he did not wish to sign a new deal with United but a dramatic U-turn today saw him pen a new five-year contract. One of the reasons given by Rooney for failing to agree terms was a lack of guarantees about investment in the squad, something that appeared to cast a negative light on Ferguson's recent acquisitions. Ferdinand is delighted his England team-mate is once again committed to the club but suggested his concerns over transfers were unfounded. "Obviously it's been an awkward couple of days and the club have done a fantastic job putting this to bed as quickly as we have," Ferdinand told MUTV. "I think Wazza (Rooney) knows he's a Manchester United player, he knows this is where he's best. He's seen players leave and talk about regretting it and he's come to the true way of thinking which is that this is the best place for him. "The manager is probably the most successful British manager there has ever been, we trust and believe in everything he does, the players he signs and the players he chooses to bring from the youth team. We trust his judgement."
