WAYNE ROONEY and David Moyes are at war after the Everton boss sensationally carried out his threat to serve a writ against the Manchester United superstar.

The News of the World can reveal that Moyes has taken the unprecedented action to take legal action against a player.

The shock move has infuriated the Rooney camp, who are now prepared to fight the Everton boss in court, rather than surrender a matter of principle.

Moyes is incensed by comments made by Rooney in his autobiogrpahy My Story So Far and last night a source close to the player confirmed: "Wayne was served with the writ, along with the publishers and the author and it looks like it could go all the way.

"Wayne, the publishers and the author totally stand by the book and see no reason why they should be worried.

"It is virtually unprecedented to learn that a manager is taking action against a football player and the decision to serve the writ has not been welcomed by fellow managers. It is something we will fight in court if that's what it comes to."

Moyes issued the writ against Rooney, publishing giants Harper Collins and respected author, Hunter Davies.

The Everton boss believes his reputation was damaged by claims that he forced Rooney out of Goodison Park and suggestions that he leaked details of the youngster's private life.

He was furious with the way Rooney's book was then serialised by a national newspaper, who sensationalised their coverage and caused him great embarrassment.

Although Rooney does complain about aspects of his relationship with Moyes in the book, he also acknowledges his behind the scenes work-and claims he now realised why the Everton manager acted as he did.

Wish him well but Rooney has a massive financial advantage over him, which could count for a lot.

Also find it fucking hilarious that the NOTW says the story was...

"serialised by a national newspaper, who sensationalised their coverage"

...how disgraceful. They'd never do such a thing of course :lol: :lol: (still pissed off they lost out in the bidding war no doubt)!

Why would fellow managers even care? Also.. do you think this will sour Moyesy's relationship with Ferguson what with him suing his star player and all. Might put Tim Howard out of reach

Good for Moyes I say.

Why should Rooney get away with saying he was 'forced' out of Goodison by Moyes. I don't beleive for one minute that Moyes is the type of guy who would leak out information an any players personnal life that he is privy too.

Rooney saying that in his book is a pretty damaging to Moyes - How could you trust a manger who leaked personnal information you told him in confidence?.

I am glad he is taking action against it - as it is a slur on his character. Why should Moyes carry the can for Rooney wanting to move to a bigger club for more money.

i remember somebody on this bored who knew steve simonson. and he said rooney was a little shit house who thought that he was always right on the training ground. he also lashed out at the senior players and staff whenever they told him that he was doing something wrong.

somehow rooney seems to be the little shit not moyes. moyes was helping him develop like any other player

Maybe its because his reputation has been damaged? I for one feel he should push it as far as possible.
