Manchester United hero Dwight Yorke believes there can be a way back for wantaway striker Wayne Rooney.

Yorke says incoming manager David Moyes needs to put his arm around Rooney and show him he is loved if the player is going to stay.

Yorke said: “When Wayne Rooney is playing well there is no better player in England so I just feel he needs to be loved.

“Put an arm around him and tell him how good he is.

“When the new manager comes in that will be his role — to try and talk to Rooney and tell him he has a future at this football club.”
