Man Utd news LIVE: Saha SLAMS Rooney for Ronaldo comments, Ruben Neves EXCLUSIVE

Wrong guy Rooney, says Saha

Elsewhere, Louis Saha has slammed Wayne Rooney for singling out Cristiano Ronaldo for criticism at Man United.

Saha told BoyleSports: “I don’t understand. I’m a bit surprised. To target Cristiano Ronaldo and say we need to move on is wrong.

“Why don’t we build young players around Cristiano? Let them learn and improve around him.

“If those players cannot improve and grow then they are not good enough.

“I don’t agree at all and I think Cristiano has done an enormous sacrifice, but under how he has done well. The team hasn’t played well and I don’t like Cristiano being targeted.”

And finally, Man United hero Robin van Persie has reportedly turned down the offer to be part of Erik ten Hag’s coaching staff at the club.

Ten Hag, who is inching towards being named manager, wanted fellow Dutchman Van Persie as part of his backroom staff.

Reports last month suggested Ten Hag is eager to appoint a coach with Manchester United connections if he gets the job, with Van Persie fitting the bill.

But the 38-year-old has now rejected the chance to head back to Old Trafford, according to ESPN via Soccer News.
