"I've got a lot of football left," insists Rooney

ANI  |  Johannesburg [South Africa] 

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney, who is under criticism over his recent form, has insisted he has still got a "lot of football left" amid speculations that his days as a regular starting player for the club could be coming to a close.

Rooney, who earned his name as a goal-scoring forward, has been a substitute in five of the last six matches for club and country, including the last game in which the Reds were left with a goalless draw away to arch-rivals Liverpool.

He has insisted that he wants to force his way back into the starting line-ups of both United manager Jose Mourinho and interim boss Gareth Southgate.

"I'd like to think I can play every game, but obviously it's the manger's decision and I respect the decision. I'll be ready when needed," Sport24 quoted Rooney as saying.

"Not in my mind (do I think I've reached the point when I accept only getting 25 games a season). Maybe in other people's minds, but not mine. I'm 31 next week. I've got a lot of football left," he added.

Rooney forward further said he just needs to keep working and trying to get into the team.

"I know that, and it is up to me to take them," he said.

The 30-year-old forward next chance to start for the Reds would come on Thursday's Europa League match against Fenerbahce.
