The English media unfairly criticizes MLS for its level of play, but Rooney sounds excited.
‘I’ve been watching the league for a few years now and it’s getting better and better every year,” he told the Daily Mail. “The lifestyle and the football there is great. I thoroughly enjoyed it (on trial) and I wanted to get back over there. There were a few teams sniffing around (in England) but I wanted to change my career.’
Here’s hoping he can stay in the headlines for the right reasons.
