“He asked away,” said Ferguson. “He came in the day after we had won the title. Nothing happened that I would get upset about.

“I never fell out with him at any time.”

Ferguson added: “When the club refused to sell him to Chelsea, he realised his only job was Manchester United. It’s brought back his focus.

“It’s brought back his work ethic and his purpose, and, you know, he’s playing well again.

“So maybe that was a good turning point for the boy. Did it end badly? No, I don’t think so.

“I think if Wayne walked in here today, he would shake my hand.”

Rooney missed last night’s Champions League draw with Shakhtar Donetsk after taking a knock in training, but is expected to be back for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Sunderland.
