Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has admitted that he is far from happy at the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, whom he regards as "irreplacable".

The England striker has had to carry the burden of expectation now that Ronaldo plies his trade in Real Madrid rather than the Red Devils.

Rooney told The Sun: "I don't consider I was ever in Ronaldo's shadow but, no, I'm not happy he left the club and I don't think any of us are.

"I'd prefer him to still be in the team if I'm being honest.

"He's a brilliant player, irreplaceable, the best player in the world - so no one's happy he left."

He added: "We still speak from time to time.

"He's enjoying his football in Madrid and obviously he's settled in well and is scoring goals. He sounds like he is loving it over there."
