Man Utd ace Rooney supports home-grown quota laws

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney supports the new home-grown quota rules.

Under the new rule, top-flight clubs must name a squad of 25 players of whom eight must have been trained in England or Wales, and an unlimited number of under-21 players will also be allowed.

Rooney told the Premier League Season Review: "I think the new home-grown rules coming in are important.

"As an academy graduate myself I like to see young players coming through because I think they're vital for the future of England and the Premier League.

"I also think it's important for clubs to have a bunch of home-grown players because they are the lads who know their history.

"For me it's a welcome ruling because it will make the league a bit more interesting, especially in the transfer market."
