David Moyes admits Rooney is back to being his aggressive self again

Wayne Rooney is back to being his aggressive self again at Manchester United and it is all down to the man himself admits David Moyes.

Since returning from the head injury and putting pay to the transfer rumours over the summer, Wayne Rooney has been on a one man mission while playing for United.

With 3 goals so far this season and his past two games receiving the man-of-the-match away, he really is taking this season by the scruff of the neck.

Speaking with journalists on Friday afternoon, Moyes said:

“Don’t for one minute think I am going to take the credit. The credit is for Wayne Rooney for getting himself the way he is.

We are here to help make him better. It is up to Wayne to do it. He takes the credit for that

“He was always a great player, even when he was leaving Everton he had the potential. He had all the ability in the world. Could he pull it all together? He has proved that over many years.

“Everybody is aware of what Wayne has done since he left Everton. I have only had a chance to work with him for three months here, but he has knuckled down really well. He has done his training.

“Everything he has done he has done himself. He has done it to make himself better.

“The big thing is he got himself into really good shape physically. He looks lean. He is back to being his aggressive self again. He is fast and hungry.

I needed all those things from him if I was ever going to get Wayne back to the level he is at.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
