SHOULD ROONEY CONSIDER MLS FOOTBALL?

With the huge pay he receives at Manchester United, Wayne Rooney would have to consider a pay cut or exit the team.


Instead of the Far East where the star can get decent wages, there is also the Major League Soccer (MLS) who are always open to the best legs in the game.

Spending three to four years there could be a different experience for the player as his career winds down. The main issue is that Rooney wants to play in the World Cup next year. As his redundancy continues at Old Trafford, he would get no chance and Gareth Southgate has warned against a move to America.

Many feel it is a wrong career move to go to America now but the player is 31 years old and reluctant to join another Premier League side where he would receive small money and no guarantee of regular shirt.

The former Real Madrid and AC Milan superstar scored upon his return. He had missed the first couple of matches of the MLS campaign due to an injury. Even then, Orlando will be delighted with the start that they have made for the 2016 season. This victory sees them top the table after four matches.

Hines opened the scoring after just 13 minutes while Brek Shea came up with a rare league goal in the 32nd minute. This was his first goal since 2012 and it provided the platform for a comfortable victory. The head coach was especially happy with the way the team combined with each other in the final third of the pitch. Continue reading Adrian Heath claimed that the return of Kaka has boosted Team
