David Moyes has praised Wayne Rooney after some amazing performances. Scotsmen Moyes called Rooney a ‘real team player’.
Rooney has been instrumental in the United squad this year, scoring some wonderful goals and assisting his fellow team mates with a lot of goals.
The England striker’s future at the club was unsettled in the summer after he was linked with a move away from the club.
The ongoing situation was evident even after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in May 2013. The first job for Moyes as United manager was to deal with the ongoing transfer saga between Wayne Rooney and Manchester United.
The 28 year old striker has scored 10 goals so far this season but Moyes was more impressed with Rooney’s contribution to the team. He has been United’s key player for a while and he is the second player in the Premier League history to score 150 goals for one club.
Moyes hopes that Wayne Rooney can become a mentor for the younger up and coming players into the squad such as Adnan Januzaj in the same way in which Ryan Giggs was a mentor for Rooney when he first joined the club from Everton in 2004.
The former Everton manager also believes that with Rooney’s wide contribution to the team along with his outstanding goalscoring record, he will be able to help improve the younger players and show the standards that Manchester United set as a football club.
