Rio Ferdinand points out differences between Erling Haaland and Wayne Rooney

The Manchester United legend believes that City’s superstar doesn’t need ‘plenty of touches’ to score goals, meanwhile, Rooney ‘would not be happy’ with it. 

Speaking to BT sport, the pundit has compared two players and pointed out key difference between them.

“We played with Wayne Rooney, if he scored one or two goals and had a few touches, he wouldn’t be happy. This guy is the total opposite, ‘give me little touches but many goals and I’ll die a happy man’. That’s the way he is, breathes about football and it’s about scoring goals and winning games.

“What I love about him, strikers young and old who will have minimal touches in the game – he had 11 in the game – who will be panicking searching for the ball and affecting the team’s shape to get more touches. He’s calm, he’s thinking ‘I want goals, I can have three touches in the game and if I get one in the box and score I’ll be happy.’ “
