ROONEY IN­SISTS HE HAS ‘I ALOT OF FOOT­BALL LEFT”

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

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.
