Football: Moyes loses cool over Rooney exit reports
LONDON, England (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes lost his patience after being questioned about unsettled striker Wayne Rooney following his side's victory over Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield on Sunday.
Rooney is reportedly unhappy at Old Trafford and has been the subject of two unsuccessful bids from Chelsea during the close season.
He was left out of the squad due to a shoulder injury at Wembley, where Robin van Persie's brace gave United a 2-0 win, but Moyes said media reports about his training programme have been inaccurate.
Rooney trained with United's reserves this week after hurting his shoulder in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Real Betis, but Moyes said that was at Rooney's request, rather than as a form of punishment.
