Dalglish: Rooney could play as a lone striker
Former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has insisted Rooney is one of the best player in the world and can play with any attacking partner or as a lone striker. Rooney has just completed his suspension and will play against co-host Ukraine.
Retired English international Kenny Dalglish believes arrival of Rooney on field will boost English dressing room. He believes Rooney is one of the few world class player in the Euro 2012. England is facing Co-host in last match of group stage and loss can send them back home.
In recent interview with Daily Mirror Kenny Daglish has praised Wayne Rooney. Givemegoal.com has listed some parts of Dalglish’s interview:
“England are not a one-man team, but the return of Wayne Rooney to their side against Ukraine will be a huge boost to their chances at Euro 2012, I have heard some people saying that too much importance is being placed on the return of Rooney after suspension. Really? Let me tell you something: Rooney has few peers in the world game. And he has the ability to make the contribution in Donetsk on Tuesday night that will get England over the line and into the last eight.”
“Rooney has every ingredient you need to be a great player and one of the most important of those is that he has retained his love of playing football.”
Talking about his place in the team Dalglish said.” He could play up front with Andy Carroll or Danny Welbeck, He could play behind one of them, in the hole. He could play as a lone striker.”
Talking about the game plan that England must fallow tonight Dalglish said.” Against Ukraine in Donetsk, England just have to give him the ball. Give him the ball and on you go. I suppose there might be a doubt about him being able to last the whole game because of the time he has been on the sidelines.”
