Ahead of today’s match between Manchester United and Liverpool, Wayne Rooney has compares himself to the nailed on Player of the Year Luis Suarez, the Mirror reports.
With Chelsea losing yesterday, Liverpool could go within a point of first position if they pick up a win at Old Trafford today.
United’s best player Rooney, who recently signed a £300k per week contract, cannot help but admire Liverpool’s Suarez.
“Luis Suarez is an incredible player. He’s unique in the way he plays and, on current form, he’s up there with Ronaldo and Messi,” said Rooney.
The Uruguayan has bagged 24 goals so far this term, and assisted ten. Interestingly, the only player who has also reached double figures for goals and assists so far this term is Rooney himself.
“People say Suarez is a street footballer like me, but I’d bet where he grew up in Uruguay was a lot tougher than where I grew up in Liverpool,” Rooney continued.
“Anyone who knows football can see he’s got that fight and desire in him. He’ll do anything to be successful.”
United have endured a miserable season so far, but Rooney has undoubtedly been their best player. If they are to beat the Reds today, he’ll probably have to be on top form.
