Former England coach Sven Goran Eriksson believes Wayne Rooney’s retirement from the England national team is premature.
Record England scorer with 53 goals in 119 appearances, Rooney, 31, announced his international retirement on Wednesday.
The 69-year-old Eriksson, who gave Rooney his international debut in 2003, told Sky Sports on Wednesday: “If I was the manager I would try to convince him to delay it (the international retirement) until after the next World Cup.
“It is a fantastic career, sometimes he has been criticized but fact is fact – the games he has played and goals he has scored during my time were world class, you don’t score than number of goals without being world class.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
