David Beckham has no fear Wayne Rooney will burn himself out ahead of England's bid for World Cup glory.
While Beckham will be trying his hardest to ensure there are no European celebrations this year and AC Milan turn round their 3-2 Champions League deficit to Manchester United in the decider at Old Trafford in three weeks, as a Red Devils fan and an England player, the 34-year-old has vested interest in Rooney maintaining his present high standards.
Ferguson delighted with Rooney contribution >>
"Burn out will not be a problem," he said.
"Of course he can sustain that level until the middle of July. He should be able to. He is only 24.
"He looks after himself and works hard. The way he plays is the way he trains. That is why he is so good and why Wayne is ready for any game.
"It doesn't matter how many games he has played or how many he will be involved in to the end of the season, he will be ready for anything."
