BIG SAM: NO ROW WITH ROONEY
Everton boss Sam Allardyce has quashed rumours of a fall-out between himself and Wayne Rooney amid talk of a move to MLS club DC United.
The former West Ham coach says the stories the media are making up between him and the former Manchester United captain are ‘absolute rubbish’.
"I can update you on the fact that all the rumours, gossip, miscalculations and stories the media are writing between me and Wayne are absolute rubbish. They'll still continue to make it up that we've had a row, and that he's walked out on me, or that I've had a row with him and all that.
“I'll tell you now that me and Wayne have handled ourselves very maturely, very professionally, along this journey. Wherever the journey ends up at is not in my hands, it's in the board of directors' hands and Wayne Rooney's hands. I have just been the go-between and me and Wayne have dealt with that brilliantly up to now.”
