Paul Ince says Wayne Rooney should feel insulted, but why?
Former Manchester United ace Paul Ince believes Wayne Rooney should feel insulted when asked to play in midfield.
Rooney has started this season as a No. 10 for his club, playing behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
However, during England’s recent 2018 World Cup qualifier win away to Slovakia, the 30-year-old played in a deeper midfield role.
‘it’s an insult’
“I think it’s an insult to Rooney playing him in midfield,” Ince, who was a midfielder for Manchester United during his playing career, told Paddy Power.
“He is the greatest goal scorer for England and he’s only three goals shy of being the greatest goal scorer for Manchester United, so why do you want to play him anywhere else?”
These quotes certainly give England manager Sam Allardyce something to think about…
