DC United ace Wayne Rooney: I could still play in Premier League

DC United ace Wayne Rooney says he could still be competing in the Premier League.

The 33-year-old former Manchester United and Everton captain insists he's still at the height of his powers.

"If I'm being honest, quality wise I can still play in the Premier League. I know that, I've always been a confident person, so I have high expectations of myself," said Rooney to CNN.

"I came here expecting to do well, I think there was a surprise from people who had their opinions which is fair enough but I never doubted myself."

In his first season, Rooney was named a finalist for the MLS Most Valuable Player Award.
