ROONEY INSISTS HE HAS ‘I ALOT OF FOOTBALL LEFT”
WAYNE ROONEY has insisted he’s got a “lot of football left” amid suggestions his days as a regular starting player for Manchester United could be coming to a close. “I’d like to think I can play every game, but obviously it’s the manager’s decision and I respect the decision,” he said. “I’ll be ready when needed. Not in my mind (do I think I’ve reached the point when I accept only getting 25 games a season). Maybe in other people’s minds but not mine. I’m 31 next week. I’ve got a lot of football left.” He added: “Obviously I’ve started through all my career, so it is a new period for me and of course I want to play. I just have to keep working and trying to get in the team and my chances will come, I know that, and it is up to me to take them.” Rooney’s next chance to start for United will come in today’s Europa League match against Fenerbahce.
