Man Utd’s wantaway star Wayne Rooney should stay away from London life
So far it can only be confirmed that Rooney won’t be moving to Bayern Munich, rather any German club. Bayern Munich’s president just shot down reports suggesting that the treble winning side was interested in acquiring Rooney’s signature. In fact, the Bayern Munich executive suggested Wayne Rooney would be unable to adapt to the German way of football.
Now, the former Arsenal defender Tony Adams has warned Wayne Rooney about moving away from Manchester United. Adams believes Rooney won’t be able to settle down in London if he moves o Arsenal or Chelsea.
Adams believes Rooney to be a player who thrives under the spotlight and for that reason the 27-year-old England international will have to sweat real hard to record good form in London.
The Gunners legend Adams believes Arsenal should sign in Real Madrid’s out of favor striker Gonzalo Higuain instead of Rooney. Adams, who played for Arsenal all his life, believes the Argentinean hit-man is more capable of adapting to life on and off the field.
“I'm not sure Wayne Rooney could handle London, to be completely honest,” Adams told the Sun. “That would be a massive risk. I don't think it's a question of finances. I think it's his temperament and mentality. London is a different animal and it takes a different type of player.
“Wayne is unquestionably a super player and I'd love to see him at Arsenal. Technically he's fantastic but I'm not sure about him mentally, off the pitch, and his professionalism.
“I know Sir Alex Ferguson has dealt with Wayne brilliantly over the last few years and I'm sure Arsene Wenger could handle him, but I'm not sure. I wouldn't like to spend my money on Wayne.”
Adams urged Arsenal to pursue Gonzalo Higuain with more determination. The former England international wants Arsenal to dig for an advantage that would allow the Gunners to acquire the services of 25-year-old Argentina international.
“My fear is that if Real don't want him, you are coming in under that,” Adams added. “If you want to compete with Real Madrid, you don't get their cast-offs. You need the best players in the league to win the league.”
