VIDEO: Wayne Rooney discusses playing in front of biggest crowd ever



Manchester United Manager Louis van Gaal and star player Wayne Rooney previewed what is the final scheduled match of their USA tour. If they win today, they’ll face one of their hated rivals, Liverpool or Manchester City in the title match of this preseason friendly international tournament. So a victory means an extension of the vacation in Miami.

A loss means heading back to England to prep for Premier League season.

Wayne Rooney has the richest contract in English football history. He’s the face of England football, and very likely the very next captain of the team. He’s also the face of the largest and most iconic club in the entire world in Man United. Yet, today, this preseason friendly in Ann Arbor, Michigan will be the largest crowd that he’s ever played in front of.

Here he discusses this topic. Also Chris Smalling won’t play and Louis van Gaal explains why.

Should be a huge thrill for Wayne Rooney. By the way, tickets to this game sold out in just two hours!

And the attendance (estimated 109,000) will break the U.S. domestic record!

 Here’s the updated television broadcast info.
