Rooney Is A Genuine World Class Player

Emile Heskey once again stated which, to most United fans at least, is blindingly obvious: that Wayne Rooney is a world class player. The United striker scored a stunningly brilliant goal for England at Kazakhstan and was excelling in the free role behind Heskey throughout the game. His strike partner was very impressed with him.

'Wayne is a great player and has shown it for both United and England on many occasions,' he said.

'It's working well and hopefully we can continue to link-up well.

'Wayne is a great player and is up there with the best in the world. He is playing in positions he has never played in and is doing a great job.'


And it's clear that his best position is still behind the main striker. It's a pity that so often at United he's always shunted wide or stuck up front alone to accomodate others. Imagine Rooney playing just behind Cristiano Ronaldo with two hard-working, pacy, skilled wingers... oh, mouthwatering.

That goal!!!! :-o I loved it. How he had the speed and balance... England are doing very well. Rooney's got 8 goals in 6 games - any coincidence he's been playing UP FRONT with a partener? I think not.
