​Gerrard urges Rooney to complete DC United move

Steven Gerrard has encouraged Wayne Rooney to complete his move to the United States this summer.

Rooney is being linked with DC United, a Major League Soccer team.

His former England teammate Gerrard, who spent some time with LA Galaxy, thinks it would be a good move for him.

"I hope he does, I hope he makes it. I enjoyed my time at the MLS and enjoyed the life experience," Gerrard is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"I think where Wayne is now in his career I think it would be great for him and his family to go and settle in an incredible state and see a lot of America.

"It is certainly a life experience I'll never forget and I hope he goes and has the same.

"The league is a good league, the players are fit and mobile and it is competitive and I enjoyed it at that stage of my career."
