“Huge Honour”! Man United’s Wayne Rooney posts on Instagram about his new role as captain

Last night Manchester United played their final pre-season friendly, beating Valencia 2-1 thanks to a last gasp Marouane Fellaini winner.

Speaking after the match, manager Louis Van Gaal confirmed Wayne Rooney had been awarded the Man Unitedcaptaincy, with Darren Fletcher handed the vice-captain role.

The 28 year old England forward took to Instagram on Wednesday afternoon to voice his immense pride at being given the captain’s armband.

Despite the ‘great pride’ Wayne Rooney felt, he looked a little off the ball, missing a couple of good chances including a penalty.
