Rooney believes that winning the FA Cup can lead United to a new era

Manchester United made their way through the finals of the FA Cup after having defeated Everton with a scoreboard of 2-1 and they are now one step closer of sealing the piece of silverware that Manchester United has not won since the season of 2003-04.

Louis van Gaal and his men are now in the finals of the English competition and will be facing off with Crystal Palace on May 21. Wayne Rooney is certain that if his team is able to win this competition and become the new champions of the FA Cup, it can push Manchester United to a title winning generation of young players.

Wayne Rooney is certain that there are enough rising stars in Manchester United that can guide the Premier League club to a period of time where they only win competitions and add pieces of silverware to their collection.

Team-mate, Daley Blind has risen in his defense. Blind told reporters that: “When he is fit you are definitely going to need him he brings something special to the team. He is exceptional. He has exceptional qualities and can make something better. For me, it is not even a question.”

His best performances, though, have been with the England national team. He has seven goals in just eight games for the England team and this has seen him become the record goal scorer for the national team.

The record is currently held by Manchester United legend Bobby Charlton. The former Manchester United striker scored 49 goals during his iconic England career.

Wayne Rooney reveals what it feels like to be the captain of Manchester United

Following the departure of NemanjaVidic from Manchester United in July of 2014, Louis van Gaal had to make a decision concerning which player was going to become the next captain of the Premier League club and it was Wayne Rooney who was selected.

Robin van Persie was one of the top candidates of becoming the captain of the team at Old Trafford as the Dutch forward already has experience in leading players of a team after having captained Arsenal a few years ago.

Even the own fans of Manchester United were questioning the appointment of Wayne Rooney as the captain. Rooney is not a player who is known for being able to actually lead a team as he has a short temper or at least used to.

Despite all of the doubts, Rooney has actually emerged as a person who has improved not only inside the pitch but outside of it as well and the English forward has revealed details concerning how it has been for him after turning into the captain.
