Newcastle star reveals it was ‘amazing’ to play against Manchester United ‘legend’

Manchester United and Newcastle United played out an excellent 3-3 draw on Tuesday night, as both sides seemingly let the reigns go a bit and let loose on one another. One of the top performers on the night was Wayne Rooney, and its great to see him hitting form once again.

On the opposite side of the field was Aleksandar Mitrovic, a young Serbian talent who, like Rooney, loves to play on the edge. After the game Mitrovic revealed his admiration for United’s captain, and added that he was lucky enough to get his shirt after the game.

“I hope maybe one day I can be like Wayne Rooney. Maybe then some young players will be proud to play vs me. That would be great.” Mitrovic began. “It’s my second time to play against him and I got his shirt afterwards. It was really amazing. He is a legend.”

Mitrovic is a real talent, and he shown that by putting in a spirited performance against a stern United defence. If he keeps his head screwed on he could well become a top Premier League player like Wayne Rooney.
