Arsenal Legend Insists Wayne Rooney Should Be Played In Midfield

Wayne Rooney 30

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal hero Martin Keown says Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney should be played in a midfield role.

Keown was impressed with Rooney in the 2-0 victory against Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening.

He told the Daily Mail: “I was at Old Trafford last night, and one player who really impressed me was Wayne Rooney.

“He was playing in a deeper role and his passing reminded me of Paul Scholes at times.

“He was spraying fantastic cross-field balls around, but it looked like he was lacking a bit of fitness.

“With a bit better conditioning, I feel he could really thrive in this role for club and country going forward.”
