Picture: Manchester United's Rooney RVP's 'sidekick'

Stan Rooney & Oliver Van Persie

Manchester United manager David Moyes had a bit of foot-in-the-mouth syndrome after the Arsenal game Sunday.

Clearly on a high after Manchester United's victory, Moyes hailed the performance of both Rooney and van Persie, before describing our Wayne as the former Arsenal man's 'side-kick'.

Manchester United's manager said: 'Great players score great goals in big games and Robin is a great player. I have to say his sidekick, Wayne, played great as well. The two of them were fantastic. Wayne made it, Robin scored it'.

No doubt Moyes has a quiet word with Rooney after the boob, but the remark will do nothing for a player who is already concerned that he is playing Stan Laurel to Robin van Persie's Oliver Hardy.
