Rooney Wants To Play Every Position

Rooney Wants To Play Every Position

Wayne Rooney is eager to feature in the third round Carling Cup tie against Coventry on Wednesday.

The striker missed five weeks with a metatarsal fracture but completed 70 and 90 minutes against Sporting and Chelsea respectively. He is eager to build up his match fitness and anyway, he never wants to miss a game and the Carling Cup is no exception.

'Wayne Rooney's been in my ear wanting to play,' Sir Alex Ferguson told Manchester United Radio.

'He wants to play, he wants to be the captain, he wants to take the penalties, the corners, the free-kicks, the goal-kicks, the lot.'

I would add that he wants to play full-back, midfielder, goalkeeper, striker, winger, all in the same game. Sometimes it seems he's trying to be Total Football in himself!

Fergie went on to add how much he relished the chance to play against Coventry, as he believes it will be a cracking game tomorrow.

'There is a real buzz about the place and we are really looking forward to it,' he added.

'It will be a fantastic atmosphere and I am sure Coventry will have a real go. From what I am led to believe, they are bringing over 10,000 fans with them.

'They were one of the longest-serving top-flight clubs at one point but they have been out of the Premier League now, which probably explains the attraction. It should be a real cup tie.'


Let's hope United will throw away their new-found face as mean, hard-to-beat, not-too-exciting team. It's high time to see a proper game of end-to-end football. A Real Cup-Tie is the perfect occasion for it.
