Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney made his punditry debut last night on Sky Sports MNF, and one of the topics that arose was who his favourite strike partner at Old Trafford was.
The former England gave a somewhat surprising reply, when he said Argentina international Carlos Tevez was the player he most enjoyed playing with:
“We suited each other’s games. We worked off each other. It must have been horrible for defenders to have faced us, because we were just in their faces. When he signed, there was talk we wouldn’t have been able to play together, but we hit it off.”
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 clubs all time leading goalscorer with 253 goals.
His first TV appearance has won plaudits with many observers highlighting his honesty and in depth analysis.
