Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has named former teammate Wayne Rooney as the best striker he has ever played with at Old Trafford.
The former Man United striker recently announced his retirement from football at the age of 35 after accepting to become the full-time manager of Derby County.
Gary Neville was having throwbacks to Wayne Rooney’s professional career, now that it has come to an end, and agreed the former Everton, Man United and Derby County forward was superior to any forward he has ever shared the pitch.
Neville played alongside the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Cristiano Ronaldo Ronaldo, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Eric Cantona and Ruud van Nistelrooy, just to mention a few.
The Sky Sports pundit snubbed Nistelrooy whilst listing the best strikers he has ever played with, revealing how highly he rates the Manchester United’s all-time goalscorer, Wayne Rooney.
‘I have him number one, up front, Cristiano Ronaldo alongside him in every single of the best Manchester United teams that I played alongside.
‘That’s the highest compliment I can pay him, because I played with [Eric] Cantona, with [Mark] Hughes, with [Dwight] Yorke, [Andy] Cole, [Teddy] Sheringham, [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer, [Dimitar] Berbatov, [Carlos] Tevez, great strikers from all over the world, not just in England.
‘Rooney would be my number one.’
