Rooney's return good for competition

06 April 2016, 12:36

Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes the return of captain Wayne Rooney from injury will help the club as they battle with rivals Manchester City for the Champions League spot.

The 31-year-old picked up a knee injury earlier in February, forcing him to miss United's last eight Premier League games, including their recent exit from the Europa League at the hands of Liverpool.

Rooney recently revealed that he is close to making a return to full match fitness and Herrera was delighted by his captain's imminent comeback, insisting that it will boost the Red Devils in their bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

"Wayne is the top scorer for us this season and he usually is the top scorer of this club," Herrera told reporters.

"We are going to count on him hopefully for the next game, so it is better for everyone."

Hererra says the return of the once Everton forward creates competition which is better for the squad and players such as Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard.

Meanwhile,  Louis Van Gaal's side travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, April 10.

United are a point behind arch-rivals Manchester City in the Premier League standings as they look to break into the top four to secure a Champions League spot.

Kick-off is at 17:00.
