Wayne Rooney will stay at Manchester United for life because he loves the club, said the young Scouser today. Meanwhile, the manager credited with revitalising the player’s international career – Fabio Capello – has described Rooney as “incredible” as the United forward seeks to maintain his scoring record of 10 goals in his last eight internationals, with a double header for England against Solvenia and Croatia in the coming week.
“I’ve always said I love this club and, as long as I’m wanted here, I’ll play here, Rooney told The Sun today. “It’s as simple as that. I can’t see one reason why I should want to move. I’ve everything I want. My family are just 30 minutes away, I’m settled and I honestly can’t see me going anywhere else unless I’m told otherwise by the manager.”
Capello, who is deploying the United player in his favoured role ‘in the hole’ behind a striker, says Rooney has is central to England’s 100% qualification record. “Rooney is an important player, he’s incredible and young – he can improve a lot with more experience and confidence in himself,” said the Italian.
