Wayne Rooney has been named Manchester United’s Player of the Month for November after a brilliant individual month from the striker.
He finished the month on five goals and two assists and given that United scored 11 goals in total, it is a testament to how important he was to the team.
The 28-year-old has returned to his best so far this season and has now been named man Player of the Month twice and he admitted it was great to get the recognition from United’s fans.
“It’s great to be recognised by the fans,” he said.
“I’m delighted with that and it’s important I keep trying to do well for the team.
“I’ve always worked on that [creative work]. Thankfully the lads are getting on the end of the deliveries now!
“It’s great when you put a good ball into the box and someone gets on the end of it to score. And we also aim to keep clean sheets. That means the forwards have to come back and help out from set-pieces.”
Last year, Rooney’s hunger had left his belly and he was a shadow of himself but this season, Rooney has been in absolutely unstoppable form. Despite that, he wasn’t keen on labelling it as his his best form.
“I’ll leave that for other people to say,” he added.
“But I’m enjoying my football and doing well, so I’ll keep working hard and hopefully continue to be successful on the pitch.”
