Wayne Rooney opens up on moment he ‘lost it’ with Man Utd coach and was hauled into Sir Alex Ferguson’s office

Wayne Rooney has recalled being pulled into Sir Alex Ferguson’s office following a heated training ground incident involving a staff member at Manchester United.

The 38-year-old former England international, who spent 13 years at United between 2004 and 2017, was renowned for his aggressive style of play, especially in the early years.

His relentless work rate and determination to be the best was never in doubt.

But his temper would sometimes get the better of him, as he explained to former teammate Gary Neville in the latest episode of The Overlap, brought to you by Sky Bet.

“I wanted to win so much that it would boil over at times [in training],” he said.

“There are times it goes too far [when challenging players and coaches], and when you look back at some of the stuff I said to coaches on the training pitch, looking back and being on that side now, you hope a player doesn’t do that.”
