Wayne Rooney has a problem on his hands. Whilst he is one of the best players in the Premier League, he happens to play on a club that is currently loaded with other talented that seem to hide his ability on a weekly basis. Rooney, who has been slung-about like a ragdoll moving from position to position on the pitch, made it clear yesterday that while he doesn’t have any issues with where he’s currently playing, he does want to one day be mentioned in the same breath with the likes of Messi and CRon.

In all honesty, the only way Rooney might ever be able to obtain this dream would be to move to a club where he could be a full-time striker, or hope that Sir Alex gave him a more consistent role up front. But with Berbatov and Tevez in the way, that option doesn’t seem feasible.
What do United supporters think? Could Rooney ever reach this goal with his current squad?
