ENGLAND - Rooney: "As a group of players we need to stick together"

04.10.2016 16.55 by Chiara Biondini  read 2984

Wayne Rooney said it was a “shame” to see Sam Allardyce sacked as the England manager but urged the squad to stick together after a tumultuous week.

“It’s a shame, everyone could see how excited Sam was for the job and he came in and showed that enthusiasm to the players. It’s a shame it’s happened and I’m sure he deeply regrets it. It was a decision for the FA to take. As a group of players we need to stick together and concentrate on the football. For the FA I’m sure it has been a tough couple of weeks but for the players we’ve been with our clubs and we have to focus on the games.”

Rooney’s role has been under heavy scrutiny since the Euro 2016 debacle.Southgate was quick to announce there would be no change to the England captaincy in his first press conference on Monday.

“There was a lot of talk over whether I’d be captain or not, so it was good Gareth put that to bed quite early and there wasn’t the speculation,” Rooney said. “We’ve got two games this week that we have to win. Whether that was with Gareth or Sam we have to try and get six points. If we do that Gareth will be happy and we’ll be happy".
