Wayne Rooney has looked revitalised this year for Manchester United after a season of frustration in the 2012/2013 Premier League season. He recently spoke out about why he is enjoying his football and what caused the problems that almost led to an Old Trafford exit:
This is excellent for England, we have the midfield but we don't have the attack. A happy Rooney is a performing Rooney and with two key games coming up against Montenegro and Poland, we will need Rooney firing on all cylinders.
Personally I think Rooney performs best as a second striker, playing just in behind the main man. This way he can pick up the ball and run at defenders, create chances and score goals. It will be interesting to see how quickly chemistry will develop between himself and the other "hot-shot" English striker at the moment, Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge.
