Rooney on the verge of greatness

ROONEY-SCHALKE-2MANCHESTER, England, December 23- Manchester United boss David Moyes has hailed the leadership qualities of Wayne Rooney and says he’s on the verge of greatness at Old Trafford.

Rooney, who was an injury doubt before this weekend’s game, was instrumental in United’s 3-1 win over West Ham and Moyes believes the England international is now playing a key role in helping his team-mates improve.

Moyes has been impressed by Rooney’s attitude since taking over at Old Trafford and believes the 28-year-old is showing more maturity on his way to becoming a true United great as he enters his tenth year at the club.

“Do you know what I see more than anything in Wayne? I see leadership,” said Moyes. “I see somebody who wants to take responsibility for the team. I see somebody who cares for how he plays and how the team plays. More than anything, that is what I see from Wayne.

“Maybe if he is not quite at the top of his form I will need him to drop in at times and he has no problem doing any of the jobs. He is getting to an age now where he realises he is not a boy any more. He is one of the senior men in the team. He is actually on the verge of being one of the great legends at this club.

“Because of that I think he is saying, ‘I have got to take responsibility for results and for performances and make sure the players are doing it on the pitch.’ The players are responding.”
