Wayne Rooney has quite literally spilled some beans on Sir Alex Ferguson, we can confirm.
The Manchester United striker, out-of-form, was preparing himself a tasty snack when he inadvertently fumbled some baked beans out of the window just as his former manager at Old Trafford happened to be walking past.
Eyewitness accounts have claimed that the beans went all down Sir Alex’s top and everything, effectively ruining a perfectly good pullover and prompting a barrage of foul-mouthed abuse in his native Glaswegian tongue.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Rooney remained adamant that he had not meant to spill any beans on Sir Alex.
He said: “I really didn’t mean to, honest.
“Quite the opposite, in fact – I was champing at the bit to feast on those beans. They were Heinz’s Five Beanz in Tomato Sauce variety, I love those beans.
“There’s every chance I’d have made some scrambled eggs too but I suppose that doesn’t matter any more, what with Sir Alex demanding a street fight so noisily outside.
“That’s my breakfast plans out the window, quite literally.”
Sir Alex Ferguson was unavailable for comment as he was still bloody livid and covered in beans at the time of going to press.
