Rooney has experienced a busy season so far, making 22 appearances for the Red Devils and England - while finding the back of the net 10 times.

But Moyes believes the former Everton forward thrives on playing regularly.

He said: "There will be times when we do have to try and look after him.

"At the moment he doesn't need it. I look for any signs of a dip. If I saw them, I would probably look to do so.

"It doesn't need to be just now. A lot of other clubs are playing their players continuously.

"We can rotate but I will wait. If it doesn't come around and I don't need to, I won't do it.

"He is a boy who continually gets better in the games he plays.

"The point I am making is that I want to keep him playing as well as he is doing.

"If he keeps doing it I don't need to worry."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
