'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rooney Framed His Injury With Goals

Wayne Rooney scored with his last touch (OK, it probably wasn't his last touch in that game as he had been hobbling around for five minutes before he was substituted) before his injury and now, after spending 35 days on the sidelines, is back and scored with his first touch. Unsurprisingly, he believes that the club was correct to restrain him until now.

'I feel good, maybe I could have played last week but I think the wise decision was not to play me and give me another few days training and then it would be a lot better and stronger,' Rooney told Sky Sports News.

'In the last three games I have scored three goals all inside the six-yard box.

'It is something I have been working on, obviously Dimitar and Carlos like to play a bit deeper so I have had to change a little bit and thankfully I am getting the benefits of it now.'


So Rooney changed his game again a bit. He is now almost the complete footballer, he can play almost any attacking role. I don't know about you but I feel much more secure now that he's back - United are just not the same without him.

when I spoke about messi an kaka I spoke about them in terms of their offensive ability because thats all they do.But when it comes to rooney he brings a lot more to our side, his aggression,smartness, unselfishness,his tracking back for the team and of course his magic,which is what utd is all about.

However much Rooney would have hated being out for so long, in the long term it's only good news for United and the player himself that he wasn't rushed back. As he often does, Rooney works ridiculously hard all the time. even harder (if that is possible) when he's injured and invariably comes back early, which leaves him more susceptible to further injuries. United didn't miss him for once - playing well and winning all the league games in his absence, and he hardly looked rusty, and should now be fresh for the end of the season, and less likely to suffer the same injury again (as is common with hamstrings). So however it seemed at the time, it should be good news in te long term, and now Rooney's back, I feel a lot happier about our chances.
