Rooney excited about Man Utd firepower

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is excited about their attacking options this season.

Rooney returned from injury in Wednesday's Capital One Cup win against Newcastle and excelled in a deeper role than usual but admits he still seems himself as a centre-forward.

"There is a lot of competition up front," he told PA Sport. "It is great for the team. Robin [van Persie], Danny [Welbeck], Shinji [Kagawa], Javier [Hernandez] and myself are fighting for one or two places. It is great for the squad.

"The manager will rotate when he feels it is necessary. I am just looking forward to getting amongst the games in the Premier League and the Champions League."
