Capello explains Rooney role

(GSM) – England Fabio Capello has revealed how he changed Wayne Rooney’s role in England’s triumphant display against Bulgaria.

The Manchester United striker had struggled in form at the World Cup but looked sharp as he made a great contribution to all four goals.

And Capello has revealed how Rooney’s position and role suited him as England eased to a 4-0 victory.

The England manager said: “I played Rooney in a position different than usual. He did very well. I spoke with him before the game.

“He had to stay just in front of the two central midfielders and from this position to go forward and to be free. The quality of Rooney was really high.”

Capello joins England winger Theo Walcott in praising Rooney’s efficient display in his new-found role against Bulgaria.
