Wayne Rooney claims he is happy working with David Moyes, according to BBC Sport.

The Manchester United forward also claims he is only concentrating on the future, following comments about him in former manager Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography, released this week.

Rooney - 28 today - was accused of "losing his old thrust" by his ex-boss, who also claimed the England striker complained about not being played in his favourite position - though he has taken back the statement that Rooney formally submitted a transfer request.

Speaking after the Red Devils' 1-0 triumph over Real Sociedad in the Champions League, Rooney said: "That's the past, I'm looking to the future."

"The new coach that has come in [has given me] a new lease of life. I'm really enjoying working under David Moyes."

The comments come after a turbulent summer for both club and player, with Rooney's potential move a constant source of speculation.

Moyes also suggested in a press conference that Rooney was a second choice striker behind Robin van Persie.

The Reds boss refused to let the player leave, however, starting him for the first time against the Blues, and Rooney has repaid him with exceptional performances in an otherwise underwhelming start for United. 

After last night's victory at Old Trafford, United sit top of Group A with seven points - two more than Bayer Leverkusen and three points ahead of Shakhtar Donetsk.

Speaking about the game itself, Rooney added: "I thought we played some great football. We should have won the game by three, four or five, but I'm happy we got the win, that's most important thing.

"We defended well, a clean sheet is always pleasing. We created a lot of chances and on another day we will take them and win the game more comfortably."
