Wayne Rooney committed to his future at Manchester United: I am happy

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has committed his future to the club, insisting he would like more game time at Old Trafford.

He scored his 250th Man United goal on Saturday afternoon, breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record as he came off the bench, rescuing a late point with a brilliantly taken 94th minute free-kick.

The Englishman is no longer a guaranteed starter for club and country and was heavily linked with a move to China, but he insists that he remains dedicated to his future at United.

“I’m committed. I have been at the club for a long time,” he said.

“Football is a strange game. Anything can happen and things change very quickly but I am happy at Manchester United.

“Of course, as I have said before, I want to play more games.

“I am in a happy place, a good moment personally, so I think I have a year, with an option [of a] year to go. We will see what happens and what happens after that.”

There are others on the side with more to offer and it is arguable if he earns a place in the starting XI, but he has showcased that he still has plenty to contribute.

Whether he decides to stay at Old Trafford or finish his career elsewhere, Rooney doesn’t deserve to be criticised as he’ll forever be remembered as a legend at the club.
