Wayne Rooney believes he may have to wait until next season to celebrate Premiership title glory with Manchester United. The 18-year-old England striker, who moved to Old Trafford for 27 million pounds from Everton on Tuesday, hinted that after a start to the season which sees Alex Ferguson's side ninth in the table and seven points adrift of the top two, the title might be beyond them this season. "We've got some good young players at the club and providing we can all grow together in the team, I think we'll eventually come good again," the teenager told the club's website. "It's a big challenge for us and we might not win the league this season; it might take two or three years. But I really think we're capable of matching both Arsenal and Chelsea," he added. Rooney will have to wait for his debut as he is till suffering from a broken bone in his foot, a legacy of his sensational performances at Euro 2004. "Going out to Portugal was a big experience for me and after doing as well as did out there, I felt that I had moved my game on and I wanted to be playing in the Champions League," said Rooney. (AP)
