Queiroz backs Roo to become top scorer

Queiroz has worked closely with Rooney as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Rooney has made an impressive start to the season for United.

Queiroz said: “I think this season will be very important for Rooney in terms of goalscoring.

“He is playing further forward now and is going to have a lot more opportunities to score.

“I would not rule out that he finishes the season as the top scorer in the Premier League.”
