Wayne Rooney has been in fine form so far this season, setting an example and leading from the front whilst wearing the captains armband. The Croxteth born striker has always confessed to having a hatred towards Liverpool, infamously carving #19 into his chest hair when United finally knocked Liverpool off their perch.
The Manchester United captain admitted: “I grew up hating Liverpool. And that hasn’t changed.”
I absolutely love it. Its great to see our captain confessing just how much he hates Sunday’s opponents. Being an Evertonian as well as a Manchester United player is probably the perfect blend of a person who has a hatred for Liverpool Football Club, and hopefully Wayne Rooney will step up to the plate and help United secure all three points.
Rooney really is stepping up to the role as Manchester United captain of late, and although putting in a poor performance against Southampton, we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt because he was just coming back from injury.
