Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted he has no concerns over the fitness of Wayne Rooney, Sky
Moyes gave Rooney, then 16, his professional debut at Everton in the 2002/03 season but Rooney left after only two years with the Toffees, moving to United in the summer of 2004 following an impressive showing with the Three Lions in that year’s European Championships. And Rooney, now 27, is said by Moyes to be in excellent physical condition.
“The team here are telling me it is the best shape they have seen him in for five years,” Moyes revealed. “And I am taking that as a positive. The club have already stated Wayne is staying and is not for sale. I am going to get the best Wayne Rooney I possibly can.”
Moyes was speaking after United arrived in Bangkok for the start of their pre-season tour, which sees the Premier League champions play five games in Asia and Australia. They begin on Saturday against the Singha All Stars, a group of players selected from the clubs of the Thai Premier League.
