Man United’s Ander Herrera hails ‘very competitive’ Wayne Rooney
Ander Herrera heaps praise on Manchester United captain
Ander Herrera has described Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney as “very competitive”.
The Red Devils skipper was injured for their 2-1 victory over Stoke City at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
However, Herrera didn’t hesitate to name the 29-year-old forward in his dream five-a-side team when quizzed by the club’s website.
“Anders [Lindegaard], because I want to score against David [De Gea]!” Herrera told United’s website.
“I’d pick Rooney because he’s always very competitive and I always want to be alongside him. Smalling – he’s aggressive and we need a defender!
“And Juan Mata because we know each other very well.”
Herrera added that Mata and Rooney are responsible for scoring the most breath-taking strikes during training sessions at Carrington.
“I’d say Wayne [Rooney] or Juan [Mata] because they spend a lot of time practicing free-kicks – they score some fantastic goals.”
