Rooney: Prem managers must put more trust in England players
- Rooney states England will be more successful at international level if local coaches give them more minutes to play
The ex-United star was 'devastated' after the Three Lions had been eliminated from the World Cup, losing 2-1 to Croatia in extra-time at the semi-final stage.
Wayne Rooney was asked about the biggest problem England youth faces in the Premier League. The Ex-United striker gave the following response:
"Playing. Just to continue playing in their clubs. I think there's more homegrown players, well not more, but homegrown players get a chance and they stay in the team, in particularly [in] Germany, Italy.
"In England they have a lot of foreign coaches who buy players in, players that they maybe know and play them all the time.
"I think only because of performances -- for Manchester United, Jesse Lingard got the opportunity to go and play in every game at the World Cup for England. So I think a little bit more faith in young English players will help the national team."
