Ferguson played him every week. Built a team around him
Played him wherever he could.
You dont like or rate rooney, we all get that. He's been decent for us this season tho
He's a better cf than dcl, in a different way
He's cleverer than sigurdsson in the no ten role
He's a better pass of the ball than schneiderlin, gueye and Davies from deep
He may well be better than all those you mentioned, but he's old enough to know he can't play all over the pitch to the detriment of the team ....yet he does it every game without fail ....and it's cost us a few times already .
