Chelsea coach, Ray Wilkins, has today claimed that Manchester United are better off losing Cristiano Ronaldo than they would be if we sold on Wayne Rooney.

Wilkins rates Rooney’s ability to contribute to the team and hails his ‘wonderful’ ability.

“If you were to ask who would you rather have, Rooney or Ronaldo, as an ex-footballer I’d rather have Wayne Rooney because he’s more of a team player,” said Wilkins. “Rooney has amazing ability but he’s a team player and he’s there week in, week out. He’s a wonderful footballer.”
