‘Rooney will be ready for Man United reunion’
LONDON: Derby County skipper Wayne Rooney will relish the “special” FA Cup reunion with Manchester United next month, manager Phillip Cocu has said.
The 34-year-old scored a penalty in Derby’s 4-2 victory over fourth-tier Northampton Town in Tuesday’s fourth-round replay to set up the meeting with United, where he spent 13 trophy-laden years and left as their record goalscorer.
It will be the first time Rooney faces United since playing against them for Everton in 2018 before a year-long stint at Major League Soccer outfit DC United. – AFP
