MLS Football

Wayne Rooney expressed his views that the end-to-end technique and style of play in the MLS is quite similar to one more American sport. Wayne Rooney joined the club of DC United in the month of July and then transformed the fortunes of a team as he inspired and influenced their run to the Playoffs of MLS Cup, where they were finally knocked out by Columbus Crew on penalties.

But the 33-year-old said that he has properly enjoyed the tour so far, and gave a hint that some more quality players can join the Black and Red in the off season. While interacting with the Euro sport he told them that “when I joined the team, it was lacking confidence and was diffident but I recognized they had the ability to do things so it was just a matter of guiding the players for showing that ability.” He added “I definitely enjoyed it. It was a very tough and competitive league and we were a bit unlucky for being knocked out of the playoffs and those so on penalties. And right now, I’m looking forward to the upcoming season and we are eagerly waiting for a few more new players who will come in and we will make it happen.”

Undoubtedly, Rooney is a legendary Premier League player after what he accomplished at Everton and Manchester and he believes that there are many similarities between the MLS and English game and some differences too. Regarding the MLS he also said that “It is an excellent league. It is flourishing, getting bigger and better and I hope that it will continue.” With reference to the quality of the players, although it’s a bit different but it is also very competitive, aggressive and at times it looks more like a game of basketball so physically one has to be ready for that.”
