Wayne Rooney, whom in England many 'fans' love to call 'overrated', is world class and absolutely unstoppable. This is not my heavily biased opinion: this is what Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique think.
The latter, of course, knows our Wayne very well and was always going to praise him while Iniesta was impressed by Rooney's work in a very defensive role at the Nou Camp last season.
'I've never seen a player as powerful as Rooney - the way he goes past people, the intensity of his play, the runs he makes from the first minute to the last and the shot he has,' Pique said.
'He is world class. Perhaps he does not get the credit he deserves because he should score more goals but he offers so much. When he is focused he is unstoppable.'
Iniesta echoed the opinions of his colleague:
'What I value most about the way they play is how hard players like Rooney work,' he said. 'He was filling in at left-back against us last year in the semi-final.'
'Finals are not usually very tactical. We can plan a million things before the game but in the second minute they can strike and all the plans go out the window. We cannot commit any mistakes because they have so much firepower up-front.'
This line that 'finals are not usually very tactical' is a tad strange, especially from a Barcelona player who should know their history: their free-flowing dream team was tactically murdered by AC Milan in 1994 - hopefully we'll see more of the same!
