Wayne Rooney can still improve as a player, according to former Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville, reports BBC Sport. "At the age of 26, you always have to think that there's more to come," Neville told BBC Radio 5 live.
"We need to see Wayne Rooney improve and he needs to see himself improve."
Neville, now an England coach, added: "He's a wonderful player, one that is at his best when he's like the street kid; fighting for every ball, taking every free kick, every throw-in, tackling and heading, fighting to win."
Neville pointed to the examples Rooney can learn from in the Old Trafford dressing room if the 26-year-old is to further his game.
"Ryan Giggs has gone from a flying left winger to someone who now plays off the front at inside left as well as central midfield.
"Paul Scholes was a goalscoring number 10 player when he first started as a 16-year-old, now he's a holding midfield player who controls the game.
"You have to adapt. Rooney is still a centre forward, but he'll adapt over the next 10 years to become someone who's thought of in that same way as those two players."
