Martinez: Player power inevitable
Wayne Rooney refusing to sign a new contract because he was not given the assurances he wanted about the future make-up of the squad. The England striker has been criticised for his attitude but Martinez believes it is something clubs and managers will simply have to get used to. The Spaniard said: "I think that's the price of having such a high-profile league. The Barclays Premier League has got that status around the world, the players are well known, they are becoming more than footballers. "But I think Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson have got enough experience and importance and everything that goes with it to deal with the situation."
