Wayne Rooney is as confident about Manchester United’s title prospects as the benched captain is about his ability to make a key contribution for years to come.
“I think we’ve got a great squad,” the United captain said. “I said before the season we’d be challenging — we’ve still got that belief, even stronger after working with this manager and the players over the last few months.”
“I think we’ve got a fantastic squad, who are ready and capable of challenging.”
“I’d like to think I can play every game, but obviously it’s the manger’s decision and I respect the decision,” he added. “I’ll be ready when needed.”
