Neville warns Rooney he must change to stay at top with Man Utd
Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Wayne Rooney must reinvent his game to stay at the top. It is 10 years since Rooney exploded on to the Premier League scene with a spectacular goal for Everton against Arsenal and on Tuesday night in Poland he will win his 78th cap.
"At the age of 26, you always have to think that there's more to come," Neville told BBC 5 Live. "You can't get to the age of 26 and think, 'My best years have gone.' He has to now challenge himself.
"Giggs has gone from a flying, out-and-out left-winger to someone who now plays off the front, inside-left, he plays central midfield.
"Scholes was a goal-scoring midfielder, off-the-front No 10 player when he started playing as a 16-year-old. Now he's a holding midfielder who controls the game.
"Rooney is still a centre forward, but he'll adapt over this next 10 years to continue to become someone who's thought of in the same way as those two players."
