Roy Hodgson has described Wayne Rooney as a “very caring” captain for England.

The 28-year-old striker was named captain of Manchester United over the summer and was also handed the Three Lions armband following Steven Gerrard’s retirement after the World Cup.

And the England boss was full of praise for the way Rooney has handled himself since being appointed skipper.

“He is a very caring captain,” Hodgson said of Rooney.

“He is very good in making certain that everyone is comfortable and satisfied and that there are no problems within the group.

“That’s important to me and the coaching staff because you don’t always pick those things up.

“It’s good to have that liaison with a man who is so close to the team and his players and who can communicate. He has taken the captaincy unbelievably seriously.”
