Rooney got ready to play on the field when a fan of an opposite team threw coins at him the day after when Manchester United paid Wayne Rooney the huge amount of money in Britain.
He took the coin from the grass handed it over to referee and started his game. Rooney’s response was exact and established. He scored the goal later in the game and brought United home with 2-0 at London Crystal palace.
Eric Cantona initiated a kick onto the face of a fan who had criticized him, about 19 years ago. Coins thrown in anger and disrespect can be blind. The Crystal palace is not a palace infact it’s a stadium with its front row almost touching the distance of the players in the ground.
Rooney instead of showing anger or aggression challenged his own reputation and got into the match when he scored the second consecutively goal in Saturdays match. The second kick was the best one in the match. After six minutes Rooney crowned it. Juan Mata and Evra set up the sharp attack down the left, before Rooney permitted a wing with a line of four defenders receding in front of him.
Balancing the ball like a ballerina on his left foot he allowed the ball to come across his body before relating a touch with his right foot that fired it forcefully and accurately into the area of the net. This kind of ability made Rooney value his wages. It is not a skill to be taught. It is natural that comes out with technique and exceptional character. Very few players can do the same. Rooney after the match said on television that I was trying to let my football do the talking.
The real and ongoing question surrounding Rooney have been about his prolonged discussion before he signed a new agreement for United this Friday that binds him until 2019.
The new Man U manager David Moyes definitely had experienced a fumbling start after stepping on Sir Fergusson’s shoes but it might have been further worsening for the new chief had he been unable to restore Rooney for the club. The Scot who took up as the boss for the esteemed squad this May feels that their stellar striker is almost like a legend now and is one of the most sought-after names among the club rivals like Chelsea.
It was due to the English forward chiefly that Manchester United was actually able to brush-aside the West Ham relegation-threatened United with a 3-1 score last weekend- Rooney had always been a one of the most coveted names among England’s Premier League contenders such as Chelsea before close of transfer window this September as he admitted his frustrations regarding playing in midfield under the former Man U boss Sir Ferguson the previous season.
However, Moyes was ultimately successful is restricting Chelsea’s advances towards Rooney whose fantastic form off late has been of tremendous significance for the club, especially in the asbsence of many senior players such as Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Robin Persie.
“What do I see especially in Rooney? Well I find leadership in him more than just anything. I see someone who is eager to take up the entire responsibility for his team”, Moyes was all praise for Wayne whom he considers as being on the verge of being a nothing but “a legend”.
“I find someone who cares about his own as well as the team’s overall performance. He is approaching the age now where he can be the boy no more. He’s one among the seniors in the Man U and is almost on his way to stand up as a great legend very soon at the club”, continued a seemingly impressed Moyes.
Arsenal have made a very impressive start of season by winning 8 of their 10 matches of the Premier League so far it’s been a shocker to many people seeing them higher than Chelsea, Manchester City and United.
This however fails to impress Wayne Rooney who said that Arsenal have been in many similar situations previously but when the pressure begins to be placed they will break down.
“We’ll have to wait and see where Arsenal is in March,” he said. “We’ve seen before that they’ve been in the top two until February or March and then faded away. They are doing brilliantly at the minute, so it’s down to them to try and stay there and us to catch them.”
Manchester United lost 3 of their initial 6 opening games of the season which have left them getting further and further behind top positions of the Premier League as they now are sitting in a disappointing 8th place with 17 points it seems like David Moyes has not made the best of starts with the English titans.
Although it does not concern Rooney as he believes they will be able to get back on top and defend their title trophy.
“We have to go into it with confidence and a belief this is when we can edge closer to them and bring us back into the mix of being at the top of the league.”
A busy schedule is ahead of Manchester United as they are playing in the Capital One Cup, Champions League and the Premier League but Rooney is certain that despite the number of tournaments currently involved in, it won’t distract or harm them in any way as they want to win the biggest one of them all, the Champions League.
Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has slammed with Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney for focusing on other matters than winning football matches. Rooney is very keen on moving away from Manchester United with Chelsea keen to secure his services. Whelan, though, argues that the player lost his passion for winning football matches last season itself. Rooney scored only 16 goals last season in a season in which he was overshadowed by Robin van Persie. The presence of the Dutchman is thought to be the key reason behind Rooney wanting to move away from Old Trafford.
However, it was only one season ago that Rooney finished the campaign with 34 goals in all competitions and he was spoken of as one of the best players in the world. Even last season, his goal return is extremely healthy because he managed 16 goals by largely being a substitute and also playing out of position. Whelan and his team Wigan will be taking on Manchester United in the Community Shield in what will be their second appearance at the new Wembley stadium in their history. Rooney will be once again missing from the Manchester United team as he has done for the last few friendly matches.
Wigan, though, will be looking to achieve magic once again by winning the Community shield.
“If we are being perfectly honest, and we’ve all watched him, he went off last season. He lost that fantastic sparkle. He went off the boil. It seemed to me his will to win had gone. He was being lazy. He wasn’t grafting. He wasn’t running around. And whether it was because the other lad (Robin van Persie) was getting the limelight and scoring the goals, I don’t know. What does he want? He is at one of the finest clubs in the world,” said Whelan.
