Capello: Rooney has his head right

England coach Fabio Capello believes striker Wayne Rooney is now over the off-field issues which coincided with his poor form earlier this season.

• Gary Neville retires from football
• Rooney expects Chelsea title push
• Chelsea v Utd headed for May?
• Nani: Rooney to drive us on

Rooney endured a difficult first few months of the season at the same time as his personal life was prompting front-page newspaper headlines.

That followed on from a World Cup where it could be argued the same problems affected Rooney's performances for England where he failed to produce anything like the sort of form he showed during the previous season with Manchester United.

However, Rooney's performances have improved with time and two goals against Aston Villa on Tuesday were positive news for Capello, who was watching from the stands at Old Trafford.

"Rooney is a fantastic player,'' Capello is quoted as saying by the Daily Express. "I have to speak with him, but the movement and passing is now good. And his head is now okay.''

Meanwhile, Rooney has praised team-mate Nani for his role in the 3-1 victory over Villa, in particularly his clever cross that gave Rooney a tap in for his second.

Rooney said: "That is something he can do really well and it would be great to see him do more of it. He has great dribbling skills but he is also a great crosser. If he mixes that up, he will be difficult to mark."
