Man Utd boss Moyes: Rooney needs break to stay fresh

Manchester United boss David Moyes feels Wayne Rooney needs a break some time this season.

He thinks his striker will need a break at some stage of the season in order to peak at the World Cup, and he says Rooney should skip England's next friendly international against Chile on November 15 and take a breather.

"I haven't had a conversation with Roy (Hodgson) yet but I think he'll try to be fair with some of the clubs and choose to do that," said Moyes.

"If you want a fit and firing Wayne Rooney at the World Cup, you might need to say would it be better to give him a week's holiday somewhere during the season."
