The Sun notes:
The Manchester United striker insists the prospect of a fiercely-contested derby before the Premier League campaign gets underway has given pre-season training an extra edge.
Rooney explained: R20;You couldn’t get better motivation to start the season with a bang.
R20;It’s a great way to start pre- season training, knowing at the end of the hard work, before the games begin, there’s a Manchester derby.
Rooney has a great record against City in recent derbies and was bitterly disappointed David Bernstein did his best to get him banned from the FA Cup semi final. Here’s hoping he’s up for puting our far less successful neighbours back in their place.
