Rooney Not Coming Back to Europe on Loan
Wayne Rooney has confirmed he will not be returning to Europe on loan during the Major League Soccer off-season. He has also ruled out another spell with England as his MLS club, DC United prepare for the play-offs.
Rooney has scored 12 goals and helped the Washington based club to pick up 39 points and therefore secure a play-off berth ahead of their regular-season finale against Chicago Fire on Sunday.
While previous players have moved to a European club on loan at the end of the MLS season, Rooney has revealed he will not be doing the same and also ruled out a return to the England squad should manager Gareth Southgate make the call.
He told ESPN FC: “No. I think I committed myself to DC and that’s why I’m going to give everything to DC. In the off-season I’ll stay here for a lot of that time with my children in school. I’ll go back during Christmas to see some family and friends.
“I’m committed to DC and I don’t think it’d be right for me to fly back and forth to play on loan with another team.
