Carrick thinks the Red Deils ace is at the top of the forward’s game.
Following a convincing 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes Wayne Rooney is ‘untouchable.’
The forward scored a brace against the Germans and was also instrumental in Antonio Valenica’s goal to make it four for United.
Carrick was full of praise for the Englishman, as the Red Devils head into their next group match on a high after new manager David Moyes overcame the Scot’s first major hurdle in Europe.
“It was probably Wayne’s best performance that I’ve seen for a while. It’s great to have him in that form – he can be untouchable when he’s like that,” the 31-year-old was quoted by ITV.
Rooney’s future at Old Trafford remained in the balance for much of the summer, as Moyes’ predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed the attacker had handed in a transfer request at the end of last season.
Since then Chelsea were courting the England international, but failed on two separate occasions to convince United to sell and eventually the Premier League champions kept hold of their man.
It was unknown how Rooney would perform after returning to the side, but two assists on the opening day of the season against Swansea City, followed by goals against Crystal Palace on Saturday and then Leverkusen on Tuesday, shows no sign that the saga has affected the 27-year-old.
Many now think that Moyes’ relationship with the forward will convince the Rooney to sign a new deal with United.
