Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney hasn’t had the finest of campaigns in terms of goalscoring – and injuries have certainly played a part. Since the emergence of Marcus Rashford, the captain has found himself playing in a holding midfielder role, and thats where he reckons his future is.
When asked if Rooney sees himself playing in the midfield permanently, he replied:
“Certainly after the Euros I’m sure for next season that’s probably where I see myself playing.”
He clearly doesn’t have the pace he once had, and the Bournemouth victory certainly shows exactly what he is capable of when on form in the middle of the park.
The Evertonian put in an excellent Man of the Match display, in which he was at the heart of everything good for Manchester United – he also netted his 100th Premier League Old Trafford goal on the night, rounding off a brilliant team move.
Rooney isn’t daft, is he? Noticing the pace and prowess from the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford for United, and Harry Kane for England, he suddenly decides he wants to move into midfield…
Fair play to him though, and hopefully next season he’ll break Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record.
