Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is not too pleased with his manager David Moyes and reports suggest that the 27-year-old feels 'insulted at being projected as second fiddle to teammate Robin van Persie.

According to a report in UK's The Sun, Rooney is in a confused and angry state as despite his own assessment of being at his absolute peak form, is not the first choice of new coach Moyes.

The 250,000 pounds-per-week player, according to the report, is not happy with the treatment being metted out to him since the club's legendary manager - Alex Ferguson - retired earlier this year. While United maintain that Rooney is not for sale even as speculations are rife that Chelsea may buy him out, the player himself has made his feelings known to his club that he will not be a second banana in the side to van Persie - bought by Ferguson in August last.
