Wayne Rooney ready to face LA Galaxy on Sunday
The new player-coach of Derby County is back in Washington with DC United to get ready for the match against Galaxy in the MLS week 23 game over the weekend.
Ben Olsen mentioned Rooney is determined and focused on closing the regular season the best way possible, although the DC United coach, regrets the departure of one of his stars.
"He seems to be fine, determined and ready to return here and start playing, focused on the task of moving this team in a different direction towards the end of the season," said the coach.
On route to equal his MLS stats
If Rooney scores against LA Galaxy on Sunday, he would match the goals mark he recorded in his debut season, since the English striker has 11 goals and six assists so far, one less goal than last year.
