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.
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.”
