Wayne Rooney: I’ve still a few years left

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney insists retirement is a long way in the distance.

The form of his rivals has led many to question whether Rooney should be in England coach Roy Hodgson’s starting XI at Euro 2016.

He said: “I’ve still got a few years left, I feel.

“I’ll keep trying to, first and foremost, help the team be successful and if I can score the goals to help achieve that then that’ll be great.”

“Over the last two years my form for England has been really good, I’ve scored a lot of goals.”

“The record stood for more than 40 years so to be the one to break it means a lot – and then for Sir Bobby to present me with the award as well, that makes it even more special.”

“But it’s something I’m looking to expand now, I’ve got the record and I just want to carry on scoring as many goals as I can.”
