ROONEY SAYS HE STILL HAS IT IN HIM
Embattled Manchester United skipper has reiterated his desire to continue playing at the highest level despite many questioning his abilities.
There have been speculations that Rooney could exit the team at the end of the current season but he has said he still has “a lot to offer” the team.
Coach Jose Mourinho has favoured Zlatan Ibrahimovic throughout the season and the Swede delivered a decent figure. However with the player out for long time, Rooney would be required to step up.
“I feel I can contribute quality, composure, experience, and know-how, how to get over the line, whether it’s to win the league or finish top four or get the final. That’s a lot of experience I can contribute to the team,” Rooney said.
The Three Lions star scored the second goal in the 2-0 victory at Burnley after getting on the starting line up for the first time since March. He also grabbed the goal in the game against Swansea.
He has had reduced game time and it seems his age is affecting his offerings to United but Rooney insists I Love Real Madrid he wants to remain in the team, contributing the needed experience.
United are still in the race for the top four even though the draw against Swansea would affect them. Yes, they are not losing but the draws are a bigger barrier. There is still the Europa League title race but Mourinho would need drastic measures during the summer to return the team to a highly competitive side.
For now, Rooney insists he can play for two to three more years or even more. He even alluded that being on the bench has its positive effects as he feels hunger when called upon.
