Rooney: I’m Still Good Enough for Premier League

Share this Story:

DC United striker Wayne Rooney believes he is still good enough to play in the Premier League.

England and Manchester United’s all-time leading goalscorer swapped Everton for MLS by signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with DC in June.

The forward struggled for form after returning to his boyhood club Everton in 2017 in a deal that sent Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford.

However, the 33-year-old helped lead DC from the bottom of the Eastern Conference and into the play-offs, scoring 12 goals and supplying six assists in 21 appearances.

“If I’m being honest, I know quality wise, I can still play in the Premier League,” Rooney told CNN Sport.

“I know that. I’ve always been a confident person, and so I have high expectations of myself.

“I’ve come here expecting to do well and I think there was a surprise from people who have their opinions, which is fair enough, but I never doubted myself at all.”
