Disable alert for Wayne Rooney
The manager of England's national football team has said that he has complete faith on Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney even though he was left from the Champions League second-leg clash against Real Madrid as United crashed out.
According to Roy Hodgson, Rooney, who has scored 33 goals in 79 internationals, is a vital member of his team, adding that he never had any issues with the English striker, the Sun reports.
Expressing his pleasure to work with Rooney for a World Cup qualifying match with Montenegro on March 26, Hodgson said that he does not foresee any problems this time with Rooney, who was sent off when England played Montenegro in a Euro 2012 qualifier and was banned for the first two games of the finals.
Stating that he will personally speak with Rooney on the matter, Hodgson said that the striker is more than aware of his problem, adding that despite that occasion, Rooney has had a good disciplinary record.
Hodgson also said that he has no doubts on Rooney's capability as the experienced player has never let him down as a player, adding that there is no reason for his confidence to be fragile. (ANI)
