Player Review

Nostalgia says yes all the way. However, don't be fooled by the 93 OVR.

It will be difficult to get the best from Rooney's new card due to his Championship chemistry links. You will likely require an English ICON.


That being said, Rooney is more than capable of playing in midfield with those stats, so a link to centre backs Rio Ferdinand or Sol Campbell is not out of the question.

Effectively, if he fits in with what you have, go for it. Otherwise we would wait for his inevitable ICON card on FIFA 22.
