Unlike the beginning of last season, Wayne Rooney is now unconditionally fit. Or at least that is what Ferguson believed.
Last season, Rooney was back from World Cup competition without any single goal, plus a rough condition on Premier League. But when the competition nearly ended, Rooney managed to get back on his feet and grabbed himself a few goals.
“It all happened last year, now we must continue to move forward. Rooney has been fit since the preseason. It’s great, he has the same energy at all times. He was tireless in the field. He is a valuable asset, “said Ferguson, quoted by Soccerway before the match against Hotspur. And after the game, we can see why Fergie called him “valuable” player. Against Hotspur, Rooney succeeded on contributing one goal. And his combination with Welbeck proved to become a huge threat for the opponent.
However, with Javier Hernandez back from his injury, Fergie said that it could be another problem for him to find the right striker.
“Berbatov, Owen, Rooney, and Hernandez have their own qualities,”said Fergie.
Of course Welbeck’s great performance against Hotspur was a positive thing, and Fergie could consider him as a regular ammo.
It means, to keep the position on the first team, Rooney has to work hard to maintain his performance.
