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.”
