London, Sep 12 (ANI): Old Trafford Boss Sir Alex Ferguson has said that ace striker Wayne Rooney is unlikely to captain Manchester United.
Rooney has spoken of his desire to be skipper, but Ferguson prefers defenders or midfielders to lead his side.
“It’s difficult for a forward to be captain. Eric Cantona was because he was such an influence to young players, they idolised him,” The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.
“But normally you look at midfielders or defenders. Wayne will always take responsibility, he has a natural desire for that and will always give 100 per cent,” he said. Ferguson insists “we have yet to see the best of Rooney.”
“When players reach 25 they play with authority and bring calmness to their game,” he added. (ANI)
