LONDON, Aug 11 (BDNEWS): Wayne Rooney has forgiven Manchester United team mate Cristiano Ronaldo for his actions in the World Cup quarter-final between England and Portugal.
Rooney was sent off for stamping and England lost 3-1 on penalties after Ronaldo was seen to encourage referee Horacio Elizondo to send the striker off.
Rooney said, "It's fine now. I spoke to him on the night after the game.
"I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed with the way he ran over to the referee.
"But at the end of the day we weren't team mates that day. We were rivals. I wanted to win, he wanted to win for his country so we have to get on with it and hopefully do well for Manchester United together."
Rooney also confirmed his intention to see out his career at Old Trafford. "I'm perfectly happy here and looking to sign a new contract," he said.
