With Sir Alex Ferguson's new autobiography, entitled 'My Autobiography,' set to be released on Thursday, the former United manager is set to displease many former United staff, players, and opposing managers too.

But the biggest subject that could disrupt David Moyes plans for the season is what Sir Alex says about Wayne Rooney. He's expected to unveil his revelations of last season which could unsettle the United striker once again.

The 27-year old has been arguably United's best player this season and just as he's finding his best form once again, it's evident that he had his problems with Sir Alex last season. The former United boss has said to the Mirror:

“You know, the problem with doing a book is you have to bring in the elements and factors which in many way either affected or determined your management decision-making.

"But because I’ve been at the club such a long time and you re-building team after team after team, there are areas that you can’t ignore. Why we sold certain players like David Beckham and Ruud van Nistelrooy. You can’t ignore these things, because these guys were big, big figures in Manchester United’s career history.

“During all that time, we’ve only had one manager and that one manager is given the duties of managing the club the right way. I felt I managed it the right way, dealing with the situations.

“I remember saying to the board way back in David’s time that we must always remember the manager is the most important person at the club. It must always be - whether it's Alex Ferguson, David Moyes or Matt Busby and, in fairness, the club have always stuck by that rigid rule that the manager is the most important person.”

From this insight of Sir Alex's book, one could guess that players such as Roy Keane and Wayne Rooney will almost definitely be included in his latest autobiography. 

The inclusion of Rooney could really effect the United striker, especially if he is seen to be criticised just after he's decided to stay with the club, following assurances he'll be played as a striker.

He may seek to leave once again and a move in January wouldn't be off the cards as the end of his contract is looming.

Although this may seem unlikely, depending on how much he pushes, he could force a move away as he will be worried once again that Sir Alex may turn the fans against him, which was another speculated cause of why Rooney was unsettled during the summer.

This will be the last problem Moyes needs at this moment in time as he tries to desperately reinvent this United side who've obtained their lowest points total at this stage of the season since 1989.
