ABOVE: Wayne Rooney holds off Jamie Carragher
The Premier League suits Wayne Rooney and the way he plays the game
WAYNE ROONEY has been told not to quit Manchester United by his big mate Jamie Carragher.
Rooney’s future is up in the air after he asked to leave Old Trafford before the end of last season.
The England striker was fed-up with his treatment from manager Sir Alex Ferguson and wanted out.
But Fergie’s retirement has seen the 27-year-old have a change of heart, with Rooney keen to make a fresh start under new boss David Moyes.
Carragher says Rooney would be making a big mistake if he left the champions and wasted the chance to work under the former Everton chief again.
He said: “I don’t think Wayne Rooney needs to move on at all. He’s playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world in one of the best leagues in the world.
“The Premier League suits Wayne Rooney and the way he plays the game.
“It’s not just a manager he doesn’t know that is coming in, it’s a manager he has worked with before, so they both know each other well.
“I know they had problems in the past but I’m sure that has been sorted out now.
“I don’t think David Moyes will want to come into Manchester United and lose Wayne Rooney. He will want him in his team.”
