Man Utd ace Rooney joins Ferdinand: Saha best I've played with

Wayne Rooney has joined Rio Ferdinand in declaring Louis Saha among the most talented players he's worked with at Manchester United.

Rooney has been paired with plenty of different players during his eight years in Manchester, but while you might think he'd pick Cristiano Ronaldo or Robin Van Persie as his favourite, the reality is very different.

He told Shortlist: "There are so many but I'm going to say Louis Saha. He was a fantastic player, a real handful for anyone and I just really enjoyed playing off him.

"He was so lively, a real striker who made great runs in behind and who was always making space for others."
