Wayne Rooney: Jamie Carragher says striker has all the credentials to become Man United captain

Wayne Rooney is one of Man United's best and most influential players and is not far off 10 years at the club, so the natural step is for him to become captain.

I haven't particularly liked Van Persie coming out and saying a few things about United's struggles this year, though, as I feel those things should stay in-house and you should have the old 'win together, lose together' mentality. He might have been misinterpreted - only he knows that - but Moyes seems pretty unbothered by the comments about his team-mates and I don't think too big a thing will be made of it as United try to end the season on a high. I think top four is gone for them now but their next few fixtures give them a chance to make a big statement - they have got Liverpool on Sunday as well as Olympiakos in the Champions League and Man City in the Premier League to come, all at Old Trafford. Good results in those games will give the fans, the players, David Moyes and the whole club a massive lift - and prove to prospective new signings that United are a big force. Champions League football might be slipping away, but there is still plenty to play for. The great sport keeps coming during Magnificent March. Here are some of the highlights you can enjoy with Sky Sports.
