Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard believes Wayne Rooney would make a defining impact in the MLS, should he make the move to DC United. The former England international has experienced a mixed first season on his return to Everton and he is currently understood to be assessing his Toffees future.
As such, Howard has discussed the possibility of Rooney plying his trade in the United States and feels his former Manchester United teammate would improve DC United regardless of his age, he told the Washington Post: “The idea isn’t whether a player is of a certain age; it’s whether they are motivated and whether they are driven to come here and perform, help a team and ultimately buy into it. Wayne will be fine. When a player starts to get older, you want to utilize him in the right positions to get the most out of them. So that will be up to Benny Olsen to figure out where he bests suits the team.”
