Man Utd striker Rooney not ready for long-term midfield role

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says he's not ready to drop into midfield.

Rooney has been deployed in a deeper position but is itching to play a key role up front again soon.

"I can see myself one day moving back into midfield - I can do it - but I'm not ready yet. I'm a centre-forward and I score goals," he told Shortlist.

"I feel I have plenty of goals left in me. I'll play there [midfield] if I have to and I have done so at United, but goals are still my main aim and the biggest part of my game."
