Wayne Rooney Names the Liverpool Player Who Does Not “Get the Credit He Deserves” After His Display vs Man United

Wayne Rooney has identified a Liverpool player whom he feels is not getting the credit he deserves after his performances at Anfield.

The esteemed Manchester United legend possesses extensive knowledge of the requirements for success in English football’s top tier, having amassed 208 goals and 103 assists throughout his 498 appearances in the Premier League.

Although his days as a player have concluded, and he currently holds no managerial position following his recent departure from Birmingham City, Rooney remains closely attuned to the league he once dominated.

One team and player, in particular, have captured his attention, a fact that might puzzle some supporters of the Red Devils.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Rooney openly confessed he is a huge fan of the Liverpool’s star player, Mohamed Salah, ahead of United’s impending encounter with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

“He carries the ball up the pitch, he makes great runs in behind, he scores goals and he creates goals,” he said.

“That’s what he’s there to do. He’s the main threat. They’ve had No.9s; Roberto Firmino, Darwin Nunez. But he is the one that keeps scoring the goals.

“I don’t think he gets the credit he deserves. Look at Phil Foden in a similar role.

“He’s got another eight, nine or 10 years to get to the numbers Mohamed Salah is hitting. I’d like to see him get more credit.”

Salah’s impact was pivotal in the 2-2 deadlock witnessed between the opposing teams on Sunday evening.

He effectively equalised the score-line by converting a penalty kick, responding to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Kobbie Mainoo that initially granted United an unexpected advantage.

The first half saw Luis Diaz initiate the scoring, seizing upon a header from Darwin Nunez, which the Uruguayan deftly flicked on.
