I see similarities in strength, speed and determination, ”says the team manager skysports.comquoted.

Rooney has more than just talent

According to Ferguson, the mix of determination, professionalism and talent sets Rooney apart from his colleagues in the Premier League and makes him the best player in England. What this impressively underpins with already eight goals in four players. Ferguson believes that the key to Rooney's current strength is his British mentality: “There were many English footballers with great qualities, such as Paul Gascoigne, George Best, Bobby Charlton and Dennis Law. Rooney is like them. He has great courage, stamina and just wants to play football all the time. These qualities add to his talent. "
