Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is convinced his best years are still ahead of him.

Rooney dismisses claims he's on the wane.

"The age I'm at now is the time when most players start to peak, from now and across the next four or five years," he said.

"Hopefully that will be the case and the team will benefit from that. 'It's been a bit of a stop-start season for me with a couple of injuries, which has been disappointing.

"I haven't played as many games as I normally would by this point in the season, but I feel fresh and ready for that battle until the end of the season."
