Rooney says he must fight for starting place in Man Utd's 'great squad'
With the England striker now recovered from the gashed thigh he suffered against Fulham last month, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has five top international forwards to select from ahead of Saturday's encounter with Tottenham Hotspurs .
However, with a tricky Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle already negotiated, and a Champions League encounter with CFR Cluj to come on Tuesday before a Premier League rematch with the Magpies next Sunday, Rooney realises there is plenty of work for everyone
"There is a lot of competition up front, but that is great for the squad. The manager will rotate when he feels it is necessary," the Daily Mail quoted Rooney, as saying.
"There are a lot of games throughout the season. It means we can get a rest here and there to make sure we are ready for the big games towards the end," he added. (ANI)
