Man Utd ace Rooney happy for more strikers to arrive

Wayne Rooney is happy for more strikers to arrive at Manchester United.

Michael Owen and Federico Macheda both got their names on the scoresheet in last night's 4-1 win over New England Revolution, while Dimitar Berbatov has pledged to regain the form that saw his grab a share of last season's Golden Boot.

Danny Welbeck has also returned from his season loan at Sunderland, with Gold Cup top scorer Javier Hernandez due to fly in later this month.

But Rooney views that situation as a positive.

He said: "Competition is good. It keeps everyone on their toes. It is exciting to have so many strikers.

"It means everyone will have to be on top of their game to keep their place in the team."
