Cape Town - Former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney
believes he still possesses the skill to play in the Premier League.
The Englishman left the club in 2017 for a final soiree at
Everton before seeking pastures anew across the pond with DC United in the
Major Soccer League.
The striker picked up 12 goals in his debut season with the
American club and despite being 33-years of age, believes he still has what it
takes to play in the Premier League.
"If I'm being honest, I know quality wise, I can still
play in the Premier League," Rooney told CNN Sport.
"I know that. I've always been a confident person, and
so I have high expectations of myself.
"And yeah, I've come here expecting to do well. And I
think there was a surprise from people who have their opinions, which is fair
enough, but I never doubted myself at all."
Rooney netted 208 goals in his 491 Premier League
appearances and picked up five EPL titles and an FA Cup during his long career
at Manchester United.
