Rooney Compared to Pele?

Rooney Compared to Pele?

Tonight the eyes of Europe will be focusing on Wayne Rooney.

Our talented striker, now playing with a smile rather than a snarl, is in a rich vein of form that suggests the world is his oyster.

On the eve of the clash with Benfica, both managers have praised the twenty-five year old.

The Benfica coach, aware of his many talents, had this to say,

"He looks like he is the best British player so far. But he doesn`t look like a British player but an Argentinian or Brazilian."

Whereas Sir Alex went a little further, replying,

"I think he`s a typical British player, but there have been British players over the last few years, maybe for the last decades who have similar great qualities that makes them great players, whether it`s a Gascoigne, George Best, Bobby Charlton or Dennis Law."

"The similarities are that the boy has great courage, he wants to play all the time he has incredible stamina."

"These are added extras to the talent he has. If you look at Pele for instance, he was also a very aggressive attacker also who could look after himself, so can Rooney."

"They have similarities that way - strength, speed, determination, but he`s white, completely white."


Not sure if the last sentence is that PC correct Sir Alex but we get the drift of what both coaches are trying to say.

Let`s hope, tonight in Lisbon, that Rooney continues his fantastic start to the season with another decisive goal.
