FOOTBALL: Peter Schmeichel believes Wayne Rooney should play in the midfield

Peter Schmeichel believes Wayne Rooney has all the attributes to be the "engine" of the Manchester United midfield but claims the England captain must have desire to change his role.

                    "Wayne can play in different positions," the ex-United stopper added. "If you ask Wayne I think he wants to play in the No.10 position.

                      "But I'd like to see Wayne develop into a midfield player. He can play a little bit like Paul Scholes could. I'm sure he can develop the engine to play in midfield.
                  "Wayne's vision, the way he sees football is really beneficial to the way Manchester United should play.
                   "He can play the long passes. He can tackle, he can win the ball back and he can defend. But Wayne has to want to play in that position."
