Nicky butt? Don't even know what he was doing in his 30s
Beckham was in America
Neville massively declined and admits he should've retired sooner.
Majority of players out there decline when they hit their 30s, especially players who have been playing at the highest level for as long as Rooney has.
I personally find it a bit mad how anyone can question his dedication to the game considering all he has achieved.
Even now, at 32 he's probably the best player for one of the biggest clubs in the country.
I'm not questioning his dedication, just reckon if he'd taken taken better care of himself he would've prolonged his time at the peak of his game. His decline started before he hit his 30s. With all the evidence around us of him doing stupid shit - getting battered, smoking, getting KOd, putting on weight in the summer, etc - it's not ridiculous to think this may have impacted his longevity.
