United - Rooney Scoops Second Major Award!

After scooping the PFA Player of the Year award last Sunday, Wayne Rooney added a second major personal award for the season to his portfolio yesterday.

Wayne, who has had a fantastic season and is closing in on the golden boot award as well, was named as the Football Writers` Association player of the season as well.

Speaking about the award, Sir Alex confirmed what we all thought,

"We felt it was a foregone conclusion that Wayne would win both awards."

"And deservedly so, because he has elevated himself to a tremendous level now. There`s a maturity and authority in his game which we see in players in their mid-20`s."

"Unfortunately he`s had a couple of injuries recently, but the award is based on his performances over the whole season, and it`s been a terrific year for the boy."

Wayne polled an incredible 80% of the votes cast and just like with the PFA award, finished ahead of Didier Drogba.

Vital Man United is now available on both facebook and twitter, so if you are that way inclined and more importantly understand all this new fangled dangled stuff, feel free to watch us, poke us or whatever else you are meant to do there!

Although I'm dispapointed Drogs didn't win it, it's a better choice than Giggs was last year!
