‘Obviously’: Gary Neville asked Wayne Rooney who his best ever teammate was, he answered instantly

Wayne Rooney has disclosed who his best ever teammate was, naming one Manchester United legend in the process.

Wayne Rooney had the honour of playing with some of the greatest players in Manchester United history at some of the most exciting times in the team’s history.

Rooney was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2004 when he was just eighteen years old. He would spend almost his whole career at Old Trafford before returning to Everton in 2017, although by then his prime had passed.

During his stint as a Red Devil, he won five Premier League crowns, four League Cups, one FA Cup, one Champions League, one Club World Cup, and one Europa League.

But after retiring for a while, Rooney is still the manager of the Plymouth Argyle and a pundit for a number of media. He has been on The Overlap to be questioned by Gary Neville.

Neville asks Rooney about his best ever teammate

Rooney appeared on the latest episode of The Overlap and faced 53 quickfire questions of which there were many interesting stories, including who his best-ever manager was.

Neville also asked Rooney who the best player he’d ever played with was and Rooney instantly responded, Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Obviously, on ability, Ronaldo. But then Scholsey as well, it’s just what Scholsey brought to the team. But on form and ability, I’d have to say, Cristiano Ronaldo.”

This should come as no surprise, given that he and Ronaldo constituted such a potent attacking combination and that he witnessed firsthand the unique qualities of the iconic No. 7.

When questioned about the now-famous question of who of Paul Scholes, Steven Gerrard, and Frank Lampard is the best, Rooney gave a startling response.

“All world-class players, but I think Stevie could’ve come to United and been a top, top-class player and almost do what Scholes could do. Whereas I don’t think Scholes could do what Stevie did at Liverpool.”

Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo were a force to be reckoned with for Manchester United

Seeing Rooney and Ronaldo terrorise defences and their amazing bond on the pitch will have captivated many fans of the game as they grew up.

Together, the two assisted 25 goals in 205 games, with Ronaldo contributing 14 and Rooney contributing 11. The two played during a time when there were numerous trophies, three straight league titles, and Champions League victories.

Many people had their sights set on seeing the two legendary sons play together for United when Ronaldo returned to the team in 2021. With Cristiano Jr. now at Al-Nassr, this is no longer possible, but Kai Rooney is still a very good possibility.
