Wayne Rooney has no doubts he will soon be back to his best.

The Manchester United striker ended an intense week of speculation about his future on Friday when it was confirmed he had agreed a new five-year contract with the Old Trafford outfit. But he will not be able to assist United on the pitch for a little bit as he spends the next three weeks recovering from an ankle injury, which was the cause of so much angst in the first place.

"I certainly can't wait to pull on the red shirt again," Rooney told MUTV. "I am gutted to be injured. I just want to be out there playing, get back to form and doing what I do best. And I will be back to my best. I have no worries about that."

Rooney is aware of the upset his outspoken comments, questioning his team-mates' talent, have caused.

He has already been assured of Sir Alex Ferguson's support and Rio Ferdinand has given dressing room approval.

In all probability, United's supporters will be bellowing from the rafters too.

But if there are any remaining dissenters, they will be won over in the only way the Merseysider knows how.

"I am sure the fans have been upset over the past few days with everything they have heard in the media," he said.

"But I care for this club. I want to be here and I want to continue being successful at this club.

"It might take time with some fans. But I am going to be giving 100%, the same as always, to try and build that relationship back."
