In a deal which will revolutionise the football world Wayne Rooney has bought Manchester United.
'It is about time players took over the Clubs' he told a Press Conference 'we have the know how and I have the money.'
Several other players are limbering up to take over clubs and Footballers in charge can expect their Managers to behave themselves.
Alex Ferguson, barely able to speak in his fury, admitted that Wayne had out foxed him with this clever move. But fans reminded both Owner/Footballer and Manager that everything rests on winning games and scoring goals.
'No problem' Rooney remarked 'I shall be playing for myself, the Club, the Manager and the Owner. I have the incentive and you will see me scoring goals like never before.'
Fergie saw problems with discipline which he feared may cause difficulties. 'How can I throw boots at my owner?' he asked in exasperation.
'You can throw all the boots you like' replied Roo 'but you might get them back again!'
