​Rooney believes Man Utd can challenge for title

Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney believes that his old club can challenge for the Premier League next season.

Rooney is now playing in the MLS with DC United. He made his debut for the club last weekend.

He still has a keen eye on the Premier League and United. He offered his thoughts on the past season and whether United can challenge this time around.

"Obviously they can challenge, it's a massive club. Last year was different because of how well Manchester City did," United's former captain told BBC Sport.

"In any other year, they might have won the title. A lot of people looked at what Manchester City did and said Manchester United didn't play that well.

"But they actually had a good season. Obviously they didn't win anything but I think they can take confidence from that and I believe they can push Manchester City next season.

"I saw that people said they weren't playing the most attractive football. But they scored a lot of goals. I think they are getting there. Hopefully it won't be long before they win the title again."
