Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has hailed the quality of Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.
Rooney is only just into double figures after a painfully slow start to the season but his two goals in Tuesday’s 3-3 thriller made in four in the past fortnight for Manchester United.
“He is a legend,” said the Serb.
“You can see on the pitch how easy he moves and how easy he plays. People who say he is finished are crazy. They are people who don’t watch football.
“If he doesn’t score for a few games or his team does not play well, they say that but for me, he is amazing. I think he can play for another 10 years.”
“I am proud to have the chance to play against him. Maybe one day, I can be like Wayne Rooney and young players will be proud to play against me.”
