Rooney issues United pledge
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney wants to spend the next decade with the club.
The 26-year-old famously backtracked after making a transfer request two years ago and there has been further speculation over his future in recent weeks. But the England international now regards his past attempt to leave as a big mistake and insists he wants to stay at Old Trafford as long as he can. Rooney, who joined United from Everton in 2004, has now been playing in the top flight for 10 years. When asked where he saw himself in another 10 years, Rooney told talkSPORT: "Hopefully still here at Man Utd. That's the aim, the plan and what I want to do. "As long as this club wants me, I'll be here and trying to be successful."
