Very true... I just don't see him playing in that number 9 role. Ibra has to be first choice and then I'd have Rashford as his back up. In fact martial would and should be second or third choice striker (with him playing mainly on the wing). How many strikers feel they need to move back in their career in to midfield? Hardly any. Why? Because Rooney doesn't possess the abilities to play that role with his pace having diminished. There's lot of strikers who are never blessed with pace but offer other attributes. Rooney though really doesn't or I can't think of them.Think we all know that Rooney is best when he's playing week in week out though. Not sure he can do a bit part role. Maybe Mourinho can get him firing in front of goal again.
