He WILL be back! Man United legend rubbishes claims Wayne Rooney is ‘finished

first_imgLou Macari has told talkSPORT Wayne Rooney is far from ‘finished’ at Manchester United.The United captain has come in for heavy criticism having struggled to make a major impact in an advanced striking role in three successive games.Some fans are of the opinion that Rooney is past his best and can longer be a force at the top level, but Macari disagrees and insists it is only a matter of time before the 29-year-old starts firing again and silences the doubters.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Red Devils legend said: “If you are a top player and you are not delivering every week people are ready to criticise and they have been quick to criticise this season.“It is a little bit unfair because at this stage of the season all the players that come back for pre-season are in different shape. Some are ready to go because that’s the way they are and the way their bodies are made.“Some take a few games to get going because they may have put on a few pounds over the summer and I’d probably put Wayne in that category.“I’ve read that he is finished and this and that and that is absolutely ridiculous. He will be back.“Confidence is a big thing. When he gets a couple of goals his confidence will come back and we will see the player we have seen season after season at Manchester United.”last_img read more
