LA Galaxy defender Ashley Cole has backed Wayne Rooney to shine upon his prospective move to DC United this summer. The former England international only returned to his hometown club Everton from Manchester United last summer but he is still understood to be considering a fresh challenge in the MLS.
Speaking about Rooney’s potential move, Cole said: “It’s always different to the Premier League.We’re getting older when we leave, so he’s not going to be the 18-year-old Wayne Rooney. But I think he’s still got enough quality for this league.I’m excited if he does come to be able to play against him again.When you look at the calibre of players that have come, most of them have won trophies and understand that mentality of winning.That never goes away. You see players want to come and want to work for their team.”
