England boss, Fabio Capello, has sung the praises of Wayne Rooney today following another two goals for Manchester United in our 3-0 win over West Ham.
“Rooney compared to Messi?” he said. “They are two players that everyone would like to have, along with Cristiano Ronaldo. Wayne is an extraordinary player, talented and willing to learn. Ferguson has taught him so much. I have told him that he must make sure he plays inside the box and he must continue to score goals. The departure of Ronaldo at Manchester United has empowered him and is now integral to their plans.”
