For those Manchester United fans who have started following the club since just a few years back, Wayne Rooney probably falls into the same legendary category as the outgoing manager Sir Alex Ferguson does.
However, when the England international handed his second transfer request in less than three years at the end of last season, the Old Trafford faithful were astounded and at the same time, developed a sense of loathing against Rooney.
