Rooney has a genius touch about him

When it comes to doubling your salary yeah I agree!

Lets not forget that other genius touch he has..

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard believes Manchester United talisman Wayne Rooney is a genius in the same bracket at Tottenham Hotspur legend Paul Gascoigne, West Ham United hero Paulo Di Canio and Stamford Bridge icon Gianfranco Zola.

Lampard recalls his first encounter with Rooney in the England setup, suggesting the former Everton prodigy’s touch defied his “bulldog way about him”, claiming the young forward had a touch of genius about him in the same way the aforementioned Premier League legends did.

At just 17-years-old, Lampard saw the gifts Rooney had in abundance and something he had only ever seen before in the game of Di Canio, Gascoigne and Zola.

Lampard told the BBC: “He looks like he has this bulldog way about him, a little powerhouse, and then the first day he trained you could see he had this touch and awareness that was…like a genius touch,

“I’d only seen three players in my career like that – Paolo Di Canio, Gianfranco Zola and Paul Gascoigne when I was a kid training with England – that had this genius kind of thing about them, and Wayne had that instantly as a 17-year-old.”
