Rooney Unsure Of His Role After Falcao Arrival

Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, has hailed Radamel Falcao but confirmed he is unsure of his role after the arrival of the new striker.

Rooney insisted Falcao signature is a ‘statement of intent’ by his club and labelled the Colombian as ‘one of the best players in the world’.

"I obviously don't know how it could affect my role, that is something you'd have to ask Louis van Gaal," he said ahead of England’s friendly against Norway on Wednesday.

"I think it is a fantastic signing. He is one of the best players in the world. It is a real show of intent by Manchester United.

"It is a thrill. We have an exciting team. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and I want it to be successful."

The new England captain also insisted that the Three Lions have to move on from the disappointing World Cup and that tomorrow starts a new chapter.

 “We have to put the summer behind us. We were all disappointed. We went into the tournament with high hopes and were expecting better than we produced, but we have to move on,” he added.

“I want to be a successful captain and for this team to be successful. Tomorrow is the start of a new chapter.”

England face Norway on Wednesday night at Wembley before their first European qualifier against Switzerland on Monday.
