Wayne Rooney has affirmed he is prepared to drop into Manchester United’s midfield on a perpetual premise, guaranteeing he generally needed to attempt and turn into the group’s new Paul Scholes.
The Red Devils captain began in a more profound part in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-last against Everton and helped the side to a 2-1 triumph.
Rooney is as of now a record goalscorer for England and is only six far from breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s imprint for Manchester United as well. In any case, with any semblance of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial coming to unmistakable quality, changing to a midfield part gives off an impression of being a characteristic step.
In the repercussions of the amusement, the 30-year-old affirmed he was glad to stay in his new part and even contrasted himself with the fabulous Scholes.
Scholes is generally thought to be one of the best midfielders ever to play the amusement and his retirement in 2013 has given a vast opening access Louis van Gaal’s side. Rooney now wants to be the man to fill it.
Gaining FROM THE BEST
“I’ve known for a couple of years, I have played there a couple times all through my vocation and I can play that position,” he told The Mirror.
“I have played and watched Paul Scholes assume that part for quite a long time and I generally realized that one day that is the place I would play so I have attempted to learn and watch what he did.
“It is still early days however ideally on the off chance that I continue playing there I can create and show signs of improvement. I think on the off chance that I can do that I can free different players up.
“Clearly it is down to the director. It is his choice — and for the group, all the more significantly, it is the correct thing to do right now in time.
“We have a considerable measure of pace in the group now and I think I can read the diversion entirely well and whether to go ahead or stay more profound and leave the space for alternate chaps.”
Rooney might be confronting a comparable issue as to the Three Lions this mid year. Leicester City star Jamie Vardy and Tottenham’s Harry Kane have surely asserted some authority for a beginning spot in Roy Hodgson’s squad, conceivably leaving Rooney, the chief, on the seat.
In any case, after a fine execution in midfield against the Toffees, it has been proposed he could make a comparative step in reverse for the national side. Be that as it may, Rooney rejected such a case, saying he had not addressed Hodgson yet.
Rooney included: “I don’t have the foggiest idea about, that is a choice for Roy Hodgson.”
