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

Rooney Repeat

Wayne Rooney has been named PFA Young Player of the Year for the second successive season.

Rooney, who was also nominated for the senior player gong but lost out to Liverpool's Steven Gerrard, collected the award at a gala ceremony in London's Grosvenor House Hotel on Sunday evening.

Rooney beat team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, Charlton's Darren Bent, Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas, Tottenham's Aaron Lennon and West Ham's Anton Ferdinand to the honour.

Rooney: 'To win it twice on the run is a great honour and I am delighted with the award.

'As a team, we [United] have done a bit better than last year, so it is an improvement.

'Hopefully we can continue that and I will be sitting here again next season.

'I voted for Fabregas, but it was close between him and Darren Bent, who has been brilliant with all the goals he has scored for Charlton. But Fabregas has done really well for Arsenal - especially in the Champions League.

'I also voted for Thierry Henry, for the goals he has scored and the overall performance - the main thing is that he was doing it all in the Champions League as well.'

I think Alex Ferguson has a lot to thank WR for this season. He's kept you going all season. Even the 27m you paid for him will be a bargain by the time he's finished.
