Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is pleased to see a bit more aggression from Wayne Rooney because he thought the striker had “gone soft”.
The Scot thinks Rooney is now getting back to his best.
“When I came I thought he had gone a bit soft,” Moyes told MUTV.
“I didn’t think there was ever a line to draw under between me and Wayne but now he realises the situation.
“This is a big year for him with the World Cup and he would say, by his standards, ‘last season wasn’t my best season’.
“He has set out his own stall to say he is going to improve on that.”
He added: “I thought he had to get back to being a bit more aggressive.”
