Rooney wants City to win the title


Wayne Rooney is happy to be away from England as Manchester City and Liverpool battle for the Premier League title.

The former Everton striker won five Premier League titles during his time with Manchester United and he admits it is difficult to see City and Liverpool at the top of the table.

While he does not want either club to prevail, United's all-time record goal scorer would prefer to see Pep Guardiola's side get the better of the Reds in the title battle.

"It's a great reason to be out the country when those two are going head to head for the title," Rooney told talkSport.

"I hope Man City get over the line before Liverpool. I couldn't bear to see them win it, it would be a nightmare for any Evertonian.

"I remember in 2005 they won the Champions League and they're still talking about it now so it would be another 10 or 15 years of that!"
