Wayne Rooney is having a stormer in some ~unusual~ positions

Wayne Rooney is having a decent game against Everton.

As a defender.

He started in midfield for the FA Cup semi-final but has been doing some excellent work covering Chris Smalling.

In the first half, Rooney steamed back to clear Romelu Lukaku’s cross when it would have been a certain goal for Tom Cleverley.

He even took a knock from the post as a reward.

Following the rise of Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy, Rooney no longer seems a first choice pick for England.

So is future at centre-back?

Make it happen, Roy.

And stop making us yawn while you’re at it.

NOW WATCH: Man United fan gets pissed, falls off roof. Obvs.
