WAYNE ROONEY has named four Manchester United legends who could take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
And to the Red Devils’ dismay, he doesn’t think the 2008 United side – who won the Premier League and Champions League – could beat them over a full season.
Instead, Rooney believes they would be more like Liverpool.
Can beat City in one off games but end up falling short as they fail to maintain the same consistency throughout the season.
However, he believes four of Sir Alex FergusonThe 2008 squad could join the lineup of their modern counterparts.
And last but not least, Rooney has committed to being an important part of this super team.

“As a manager, I’m amazed.”
