Wayne Rooney claims surprise Man Utd teammate was a ‘nightmare’ and fell out with everyone in dressing room

Wayne Rooney has made a shock revelation about one of his old Manchester United teammates, calling him a ‘nightmare’.

Former Man United forward Andy Cole joined Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Ian Wright and Rooney on the latest episode of The Overlap – brought to you by Sky Bet.

Cole, who scored 24 goals across all competitions in Man United’s treble-winning campaign, touched on his falling out with fellow frontman Teddy Sheringham.

In doing so, Rooney spoke about his own fallouts during his time at Old Trafford, revealing Nemanja Vidicwas a ‘nightmare’.

The 38-year-old claimed Vidic would often have arguments within the squad, stating he clashed with Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra during his nine-year spell at the club.

“[Nemanja] Vidic was a nightmare,” he said. “He’d have an argument with someone, I remember he didn’t speak to Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] for six months, didn’t speak to Patrice [Evra] for months, he’d have an argument and just wouldn’t speak to them.”

The Man United legend then recalled his own dispute with the Serbian defender.

He added: “I had an argument with him once and I remember that he was going down the same route with me, so I pulled him for a chat and said, ‘Grow up, what’s up with you? We’re teammates’.”

Despite Vidic being a ‘nightmare’, he won an impressive five Premier League titles and the Champions League whilst at Man United.

Ex-Man United captain Keane also chipped in on players arguing with each other as he explained that it ‘never interfered’ with the team’s targets.
