London, Mar 6 : Wayne Rooney has said that there is nowhere better to play his football than in England, and added that he will never quit English football - because it is the best in the world.
The Manchester United forward cannot envisage playing his club
football for anyone other than United. Moving overseas still holds
a fascination for some English players, but for Rooney there is no
place like home. "English football has improved so much in the past
few seasons," Rooney said.
"We have proved we have the best league in the world, which is why we attract the best players in the world. It's down to English players if they decide to play abroad, but for me, English football is the best. I love playing here and I'm pretty sure that will never change," The Times quoted Rooney, as saying.
He admitted that he loves playing here and was pretty sure that will never change.
Manchester United progressed to the quarterfinals of the Champions League for a record ninth time by beating Lyon 1-0 on Tuesday.
"If we want to win the Champions League we'll have to improve on the performance against Lyon. We got a bit edgy in the second half. We're looking for better performances," he added.
