Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney rates Chelsea skipper John Terry as the best defender he's faced.

With 184 goals in 376 appearances for United, it's fair to say Rooney has got the better of most defences he's come up against.

But the front man credits his former England teammate Terry as the toughest he's come up against.
