Wes Brown has sung the praises of team mate Wayne Rooney, claiming nobody is better than him.

“I wouldn’t swap Wayne Rooney for anyone,” said Brown. “He was a great player when he first came to United, but he has got better ­every year and I think this season he has put himself right up there with the best players in the world. At the moment he isn’t one of the best – he’s the best. I know I am biased but there isn’t a ­weakness to his game and he has been ­scoring goals for fun. Ronaldo is ­fantastic, but maybe leaving United has given Wayne the chance to play in his favourite position as a striker and he has been ­unbelievable.”
