Rooney claimed the debate about his best position was becoming an annoyance.
He said: “Too much is getting made about it. I'm captain of the team and I feel I can do a very good job in the role I played.
“It's about the team and about us winning. I played in that role and helped us win the game.
“I've done it my whole career and suddenly it's big news. It's not a big thing and I think there's a big over-reaction to it.
“I am happy where I'm playing and I think I'm doing a good job."
