Man Utd record-breaker Wayne Rooney is too expensive for Palace - Sam Allardyce

Man Utd record-breaker Wayne Rooney is too expensive for Palace - Sam Allardyce

Robbie Savage says age and not playing regular games is catching up with Manchester United Captain, Wayne Rooney.

"I would like to play more but that's the way it's panned out and I've tried to help the team off the pitch, on the pitch, and tried to help us win".

Rooney is the record goal-scorer for both United and England, but the 31-year-old has started only 22 games this season and has hinted he may have to leave Old Trafford this summer in order to ensure first-team football.

The skipper committed his immediate future to United in February amid interest from China, saying he wanted to remain at the club during this "exciting time" - a period that could soon bring Europa League glory.

Crosby plays on after scare of head-first crash
Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel have been fantastic offensively in the playoffs. The Penguins handled the Blue Jackets 4-1 in Round 1, scoring three goals or more in all five games.


The 35-year-old silenced his critics with a series of commanding performances up front despite his critics suggesting he could struggle to adjust to Premier League football. "I've had to keep working and try to take my chances when I get the opportunity. The more I play, the better, and the more I feel I can help the team", he said in the interview with The Guardian.

Ibrahimovic's season was cut short in April following his serious knee injury in a 2-1 win against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-finals.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has pledged his future to the club despite growing speculation of leaving the Red Devils this summer.

"He gets hammered and yet he is Manchester United's and England's top goal-scorer", Savage told BBC 5 live.

"This club will be successful under Jose Mourinho", he said.

"This is a European semi-final".

Adding to League Cup glory would be a good end to a hard first campaign for Mourinho (pictured), who Rooney has once again backed to flourish in the Old Trafford hotseat. If United are to seriously move on under Mourinho and recreate even a modicum of the success of old, Rooney is exactly the kind of player they could be doing without.
