Finally An England Coach Who Can Handle Rooney

Finally An England Coach Who Can Handle Rooney

Whisper it quietly but it looks like that England have finally landed a man who can get the best out of Wayne Rooney who's now starting to reproduce his United form for England as well.

Slovakia were no great opponents of course and Martin Skrtel especially looked out of his depth without the protection of Liverpool's stifling misfield - he was shown up to be an ordinary player by Rooney. The same Rooney who, under Eriksson and McClaren struggled even against opponents of similar quality.

He was very good against Belarus and Croatia earlier which gives me hope that he might become consistently excellent in the England shirt as well. And why is it important to me who frequently expressed his dislike of the international game? Well, it's certainly important for Rooney to play well for England - and he gets frustrated when things don't go well.

However, when he does well for England he is visibly more confident the next time he pulls on the red shirt of United. With a season entering its crucial stage a fit and confident, in-form Rooney would certainly be a prize asset. Here's hoping for another brace against Ukraine.

I take it Vidic is a poor player? If Skrtel was shown as an ordinary player by Rooney then Vidic was shown as a Conference-standard player by Torres.

Fergie handles rooney just fine. Every england manager that has been in charge of this so called 'golden generation' has been unable to manage rooney and the midfield partnership of gerrard and lampard. Capello seems to be doing the job though.
