There has been a lot of football activity these last few days, in anticipation of the new Premier League season that starts on Saturday. At Manchester United, Wayne Rooney was named the new captain on Tuesday, taking over from Nemanja Vidic who left the club for Inter Milan.

The battle for the captaincy was largely seen as between Rooney and Van Persie. The former was reportedly promised the position by former manager David Moyes, while the latter is seen as being very close to current manager Van Gaal.

So what did Rooney tell Van Persie when the announcement was made..? Twitter users know.
