Rooney eyes United, England captaincy

FC's Craig Burley proclaims RVP, Rooney and Mata can play together, but they have a ways to go.

Wayne Rooney has revealed his ambition to captain not just Manchester United but also England on a permanent basis.

• United unveil state-of-the-art medical facility
• Okwonga: Please excuse Tom Cleverley
• Mitten: Manchester United as a way of life
• Mata outlines preference for central role

With Nemanja Vidic leaving the club in the summer for Inter Milan, United manager David Moyes is heavily tipped to name Rooney his new skipper for next season.

Wayne Rooney has captained Manchester United on several occasions during his nine-and-a-half years at Old Trafford.

The striker is also in contention to succeed Steven Gerrard -- who could retire from international football after this summer's World Cup -- as England captain under Roy Hodgson. Rooney has worn the England armband twice in his 89 caps.

"I've captained a few times for United and if the manager wants me to be captain, I'd have no problem with that," Rooney told club magazine Inside United. "I'd grab it with both hands.

"It'd be a great honour to captain my country but, again, it's the manager's call and I'm sure he'll have a few contenders. You don't know what Steven is going to do in the summer, only he knows."
