The selection of Rooney ahead of the great performances of Drogba, Fabregas, and Tevez speaks a lot about the type of season the United striker really had. I happen to think the voting was pretty easy, and this selection didn’t really come as a surprise to me. But honestly, was it a surprise to you?
The pressure heaped upon Rooney this season with the task of filling the boots left by Ronaldo, while continuing to fill his own very large boots seemed to be an impossible task.
He did it.
This is the first step to FIFA player of the year. You think I’m crazy? Don’t be too surprised to see his name lead the list of candidates, especially if this type of performance continues through the summer.
Thank you Wayne.
