Rooney: Anfield and Stamford Bridge hardest away days

Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney made his punditry debut on Sky Sports MNF beside former rival and Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher on Monday.

With the former England international revealing the two Premier League rivals he least enjoyed playing away against, when he said:

“I wanted to win at Anfield more than anywhere. I always thought that at Anfield, you could play into their hands. There and Chelsea, under Jose Mourinho the first time, there you had to be at your best.

If you were going to win, you would nick a goal. You wouldn’t win by playing nice football. It wasn’t enjoyable to play there, as the game went on.”

Rooney left United this summer to rejoin boyhood club Everton after spending 13 trophy-laden seasons at Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old won five Premier League titles and is the Old Trafford club’s all time leading goalscorer with 253 goals.

His first TV appearance has won plaudits with many observers highlighting his honesty and in depth analysis.

Rooney also discussed how he believes Alexis Sanchez will be the perfect signing for Unitedand how he has strong ambitions to move into management once his playing career is over.
