Capello: Rooney could be best in world

Published Add your comment

Fabio Capello maintains there is "no hurry" for Wayne Rooney to hit top form with England and insists the Manchester United striker can become "one of the best in the world".

Despite some 14 goals from 43 caps, Rooney has never quite fulfilled his potential for the national team since impressing at Euro 2004, which ended with a foot injury as England lost in the quarter-finals.

"I believe that Rooney has a very good chance of becoming truly one of the best in the world," the England manager told the July edition of FourFourTwo magazine. "He´s still young and will have lots of chance to improve."
