Paul Pogba: Wayne Rooney is a legend at Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan

Paul Pogba has heaped praise on Wayne Rooney at Manchester United following their Europa League final success.

The Frenchman opened the scoring in Stockholm in the first-half and Henrikh Mkhitaryan closed the game just moments after half-time, securing Champions League football ahead of next season.

Rooney has been on the bench throughout the majority of the season after suffering poor form and injuries but was introduced as a late substitute, lifting the trophy with his team-mates.

Speaking about the Englishman, Pogba claims he deserves everything following an incredible playing career.

“He deserves everything. He’s had a great career,” he said.

“Someone who helps the players, who talks to the players, to the young guys.

“Like I say, he’s a legend.”

The trophy is his 16th piece of major silverware across both domestic and international competitions at club level and it would have been a brilliant way to see out his career at United.

Rooney has been incredible at United and if he chooses to leave this summer, he’ll always be a legend at the club for his spectacular contribution, even though it seems like an exit is more likely, especially after his recent snub from the England squad.
