Liverpool legend Carragher: Man Utd's Rooney match for Dalglish in prime

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher rates Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney alongside Kenny Dalglish at his best.

Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "It doesn’t matter whether Wayne plays as a centre forward or behind a front man, he is equally effective in both roles, as Kenny was in his pomp. The love and enthusiasm he has for the game was equally reminiscent of Dalglish.

"I’m delighted he stayed at United because I did not understand why he wanted to move. Why risk all he has built for a few years with Chelsea? To be the ‘main man’? If he wants to be the main man at United again, as he was a couple of years ago, the answer is simple: outperform Robin van Persie."
