Manchester United boss David Moyes has lauded striker Wayne Rooney as his main man after a vital victory at Crystal Palace yesterday, as reported by Sky Sports.

Rooney scored a stunning half volley in United’s 2-0 win at Selhurst Park last night just hours after he signed a new long term contract with the club.

The England striker is now set to stay with the club until he is 33 and he is taking home a English football record wage, something that has been scrutinised heavily.

Moyes admits he was desperate to tie down his main man and admitted that a number of big name clubs showed an interest in signing the 28 year old since he has taken over.

“He’s a really important player and you think about the amount of clubs who wanted to sign him,” Moyes said.

“He would have been too difficult to replace. There aren’t enough top players out there that you can get cheaply or easily.

“Wayne’s one of them, one of the top players. He shows it week in, week out for us and you can see the change in him – his leadership, what he’s trying to bring to the team.”
