Rooney furious at Derby owner for lack of sincerity & honesty

2 min read

Derby County manager Wayne Rooney has accused owner Mel Morris of a lack of sincerity and honesty when telling the players and staff at the club that administration was likely.

Rooney also labelled the Rams owner disrespectful for the way he has conducted himself, having not made the effort to speak with him for more than six weeks.

“In my opinion, it wasn’t sincere enough, it wasn’t heartfelt enough, and it wasn’t done with enough honesty. Obviously he has moved on and we have to move on and put Mel Morris to the back of our minds,” Rooney said.

“I personally haven’t spoken to Mel Morris since 9 August. I still haven’t had a one-on-one conversation, no phone call, no text message. Nothing.”

Rooney continued: “I find it a bit disrespectful, to be honest. Communication is so important, whether it’s good news or bad news, so we can deal with it.

“He doesn’t have to apologise to me. I just found, as manager of this football club, getting questions from players and staff and not being able to answer, I was hurt by that.

“He’s put a lot of money into the club, and he deserves a lot of respect for that, but there are ways of handling things and it has left me disappointed.”

Following talks with the administrators this morning, Rooney is confident the club will survive.

“The conversation was a lot more positive than I thought it would be, to be honest,” said the 35-year-old.

“I don’t think the club will go into liquidation, we’ll get through this. The club won’t be short of buyers, that’s for sure.

“It’s a massive club and the amount of people coming forward to invest means I am really confident we will get through this for the better.

“It is taking a step backwards, of course, but sometimes in life that’s what you have to do. But the quicker we can get through this the better, obviously.”
