Former England international Wayne Rooney has said that he can still play in the Premier League. The former Everton and Manchester United ace currently plies his trade for the MLS franchise DC United after leaving Everton at the end of the last season. Besides being the highest goalscorer for England, the 33-year-old forward also notched up the record number of goals for Manchester United during his 10-year stay at the club.
Speaking to CNN, the player said, “If I’m being honest, I know quality wise, I can still play in the Premier League.”
He said, “I know that. I’ve always been a confident person, and so I have high expectations of myself. And yeah, I’ve come here expecting to do well. And I think there was a surprise from people who have their opinions, which is fair enough, but I never doubted myself at all.”
Speaking about the current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Rooney said, “Ole Gunnar’s a fantastic person. I think, the club will have a decision to make at the end of the season, and it’d be nice to see if Ole’s going to continue with this form, and get a shot at the job on the payment basis. But if not, if the club go to choose from somewhere else, then I think in my opinion Pochettino would be the right guy.”
