Law hates comparisons but admits that there is a link between him and Unitedâs current superstar.
âI like Rooney,â Law told the Mirror. âHeâs a bit of a grafter as well. Heâll get stuck in. Greaves was different. He was a poacher.
âWhen Greaves got in or near the box, you just thought âoh s***, no, not himâ because invariably he would score.
âBut Greaves never got involved in the violence. Rooney and I share an attitude that if you want to be a goalscorer, you have got to get in there and mix it.
âDefenders donât like people getting stuck in. If somebody kicks you, youâve got to kick them back. Because if you donât, they will kick you again and again and again.
âBill Shankly instilled that in me when I played for him at Huddersfield. I got into trouble a lot with referees but if somebody kicked me I wasnât going to let them get away with it.
âI was going to kick them back. They didnât like it and when they didnât like it, they didnât kick you again so that was my protection really.â
