Can Wayne Rooney Come back Stronger Next Season?

Wayne Rooney is currently on a vacation with his family and getting prepared physically and mentally for the 2010-11 Premier League season starting from 14 August 2010.

Following a disastrous World Cup mission with England team, Rooney has been given a much-needed rest by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson who did not included him in the squad touring North America.

Moreover, reports out in the media also reveal that Ferguson may not rush Rooney at the beginning of the season and it is pretty much understandable that Rooney would be part of United’s opening fixture next season.

Manchester United got the best out of Wayne Rooney last season as the English striker scored 34 goals in all competitions and was the highest scorer among the English players in Premier League last season.

However, the 24-year-old suddenly lost his scoring form after picking up an ankle injury towards the end of the last season. He could not score any goal in the last few matches of the season and it continued during England’s World Cup campaign in South Africa.

Now, Manchester United and England fans are expecting Rooney to come back stronger next season. United, who has been heavily depended on Rooney since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer, has already signed Mexican striker Javier Hernandez and is currently in the race to sign Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli. So, it seems the pressure on Rooney would be less next season.

England coach Fabio Capello would also expect a full-fit Wayne Rooney ahead of England’s Euro 2012 qualifying campaign starting from September 2010.
