Rooney: This is where I belong

Wayne Rooney signed a new five-year contract at Manchester United after being convinced that "this is where I belong". The club confirmed the news on Friday lunchtime, ending an amazing week which included Rooney insisting the Old Trafford outfit no longer matched his ambitions. Yet after a staggering 24-hour period, and demonstration by irate supporters at Rooney's house in Prestbury, the England striker is now staying. Rooney said: "I'm delighted to sign another deal at United. In the last couple of days, I've talked to the manager and the owners and they've convinced me this is where I belong. "I said on Wednesday the manager's a genius and it's his belief and support that have convinced me to stay."
