Wayne Rooney: Injury blow for United captain

Teddy Sheringham believes Louis van Gaal should change Manchester United’s system to get the best out of Wayne Rooney.

Rooney has scored only two goals in the Premier League so far this season, but Sheringham has suggested he needs more support in attack.

“Van Gaal is trying something different at Man Utd and it is not quite suiting Wayne Rooney at the moment,” Sheringham, now Stevenage manager, told ESPN FC.

“You have a top-quality player there, so you would like to think there is a way of finding a system that will suit him. It is up to the manager to work that out.

“Rooney will score goals if he is given the right kind of set-up to work in. He has proved that time and again down the years.

“All I would say is playing up front on your own is very tough. Not many players can pull that off successfully.

“I certainly wouldn’t have fancied trying to play that role and always had a partner alongside me.”

    The system has long been set to suit mr rooney. We all know how it’s going so far.

    But what if Rooneys touch and general play warrants him to be benched? Let alone the fact he’s had chances this season but has lost his killer instinct.
