Man Utd captain Rooney fed-up with his England snipers

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is fed up with the sniping over his England form.

Rooney claimed the debate about his best position was becoming an annoyance.

He said: “Too much is getting made about it. I'm captain of the team and I feel I can do a very good job in the role I played.

“It's about the team and about us winning. I played in that role and helped us win the game.

“I've done it my whole career and suddenly it's big news. It's not a big thing and I think there's a big over-reaction to it.

“I am happy where I'm playing and I think I'm doing a good job."
