He is Manchester United’s all-time leading goalscorer, but if you ask teammate Matteo Darmian, Wayne Rooney is a pretty decent goalkeeper as well.
Probably Wayne Rooney
was the Italian’s answer when he was asked by the official Premier League website who would be the best possible stand-in goalkeeper, in case United were, for whatever reason, obliged to make an outfield player put the gloves on during a match.
Sometimes at the end of the training session, he goes in goal and someone shoots and he saves it
Darmian explained. The Italian went on to talk about the impact Jose Mourinho has had on the team, and how important it is that next season United won’t have yet another new manager.
It’s good. When the new manager came in, everything changed. But next season the manager will be the same and it’s good for everyone. Everyone can see the progression of the team. We want to win every game, we deserve to win a lot of games but sometimes we didn’t win
the Italian defender said, sounding eager to win as many trophies as possible with United;
We want to finish the season well, to win a trophy is always a pleasure so we will fight for the Europa League, and next season we’ll fight for every title.
