Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Ever­ton man­ager Ron­ald Koe­man has spo­ken again of his de­sire to see Wayne Rooney back at Good­i­son Park. Koe­man said Sun­day that “Rooney is very wel­come at Ever­ton” and that his club “can hope” to sign the striker, who is cur­rently out of fa­vor at Man­ches­ter United. Koe­man was speak­ing af­ter Ever­ton’s 20 win over West Ham, and two days af­ter say­ing he would be “very pleased” if Ever­ton had the chance to sign Rooney be­cause he “is a great player, and he has still not fin­ished his ca­reer.” Rooney left Ever­ton in 2004 at the age of 19 to join United. He has lost his place in both the United and Eng­land teams this sea­son. Rooney said in June he will never play for an­other English club than United. United man­ager Jose Mour­inho said Fri­day that Rooney would not be al­lowed to leave in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow.
