Rooney hails Man Utd arrival Hargreaves

Wayne Rooney has hailed the arrival at Manchester United of his England teammate Owen Hargreaves.

"Playing with Owen is brilliant," said Rooney. "He runs all over the pitch and links up the play. He's so unselfish, one of those players who people don't always see what he does for the team.

"He's a really strong person too. He took criticism from the England fans at the World Cup but he just kept on and he was our best player in the end.

"He'll be a great addition and I think he can link well with Michael Carrick. Michael can get forward more, while Owen likes to win the ball and pass it on."
