Redknapp: Rooney may need to leave United

08 October 2016, 17:18

Cape Town - Harry Redknapp has weighed in on the Wayne Rooney debate by claiming the Manchester United captain may need a change of scenery to reviltalise his stagnant career.

Rooney has come under severe criticism for his lack of impact for club and country over the last 12 months.

While the debate drags on whether or not the England captain can still perform at the world class level expected of him, Redknapp says he hopes he can find his goal scoring touch again.

"He's suffered with his form and I hope he revives himself at Old Trafford but if not a change of scenery could do him good," he told The Daily Star.

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss then mentioned how former England winger Paul Merson who went through a simialr slump, changed the fortunes of his club at the time after leaving Aston Villa.

"It was a different level to Wayne, of course, but Paul Merson transformed Portsmouth for me. He arrived back in 2002, the lads loved him and he was a good player given a fresh test of his character.

"There are certain players who thrive off that and Wayne might just need a new challenge," he added. "He would be a great signing for a couple of seasons and could have a major impact on a Premier League club.

"He could tip the balance for a top-four team if United were to let him go. I'd take Wayne at Arsenal or Chelsea and he has to play as a No.9 or 10 - midfield isn't for him yet."
