Wayne Rooney says that he wants to win the title next season as Manchester United’s captain.

The Red Devils are currently without a skipper after Nemanja Vidic left on a free transfer, and new boss Louis van Gaal is thought to be close to naming the Serbian’s successor.

Rooney and Robin van Persie – whom LVG has a good relationship with – are seen as the frontrunners, with a number of the club’s senior stars having exited in recent times.

Many believe RVP is the man who will get the nod thanks to his familiarity with the new chief’s tactics after a spell in the Holland national team, but Rooney says that he wants the armband and that he is desperate to lift the Premier League trophy next year:

“Of course I would like the captaincy but it’s the manager’s decision who he chooses.” He is quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

“I think he wants to work with the players and then choose a captain from there.

“I don’t think he was ever going to just walk in and choose a player from the off.  I’m sure he will look at the players now and make his decision in a couple of weeks.

“We can win the title. Last season was a bad one, we know that, but we are confident we can put it right. We have to believe we can win the title.”
