Wayne Rooney urged former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to sign current Arsenal star Mesut Ozil back in 2010, when the German was at Werder Bremen.
What was Fergie’s reply? ‘Mind your own business’.
Reflection is a wonderful thing but had Ferguson listened to Rooney three years ago, United would currently be boasting one of the best creative and attacking midfielders in their squad.
Well known celebrity and Arsenal superb fan Piers Morgan couldn’t resist the chance to hop onto Twitter, where he has a heavy presence, and use the revelation to suggest that Rooney should move to Arsenal this winter if he’s after an Ozil style link up.
Rooney was quite publicly linked with a high profile switch to Arsenal over the summer, in the midst of the Gunners bidding for Liverpool forward Luis Suarez, with the North London club subsequently not getting either.
However, it seems Rooney’s chance to play with the guy Jose Mourinho called the ‘best number ten in the world’ has passed.
Can’t blame Piers for trying though.
