Sir Alex Want Wayne Rooney To Step Up His Game


It has been reported that Sir Alex Ferguson has told England striker Wayne Rooney that it is time to step up and fill the huge void left by winger Cristiano Ronaldo.

It is also believed that the Manchester United manager has promised Rooney that he will get his wish to play in his preferred centre-forward role this season.

But now it is said that Sir Alex wants the England man to repay him by bagging a career-best 25 goals over the course of the campaign and Sir Alex said that he doesn’t think the responsibility of getting more goals will effect Wayne at all as he has got the mental strength for all that kind of thing and he has proved that time and time again.

Sir Alex also stated that Rooney will be used as a central striker this season as he goes on these bursts of goals.

The legendary manager also said that last season Rooney hit seven in a row at one point and if he can do that more consistently over the season Rooney will definitely get to 25 goals and above.

However Sir Alex also admitted that Wayne Rooney is a totally different type of player to Ronaldo he think that these players cannot be compared as they are such different types.
