Rooney explains motivation behind excellent Man Utd form

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney admits he's on personal mission this season to prove himself world class.

He is amid the goals, training hard and playing up front each week, even if United have slipped away from their favourite position on top of the Barclays Premier League. The big man is back, as he once said of himself.

"I've just been wanting to prove I'm a top player," said Rooney. "I wanted to prove it to myself rather than anyone else. I wanted to come back fit and scoring goals. I feel good."
