Silvestre: Rooney signing made me 'super, super happy'

Former Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre has spoken of his joy when the club signed Wayne Rooney, insisting it paralleled the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Ronaldo and Rooney arrived in 2003 and 2004 respectively under Sir Alex Ferguson, eventually forming a formidable partnership and cementing themselves as club legends.

"When I heard we were signing him [Wayne Rooney], I was super, super happy. It was the same feeling as when we signed Cristiano the year before," Silvestre told United’s official website.

"You know you are getting someone that’s going to stay there for a while and perform, bring what you need to win trophies, which is scoring goals and creating chances. 

"I think we were all really excited to sign one of the best young prospects around. For me, it meant an even harder test every day because I had to face him in training, but I loved that.

He added: "When I sit down and think about the players I played with during my career, for my clubs and my country, it’s ridiculous. 

"Zidane, Ronaldo, Cristiano, Baggio, Henry, Trezeguet, Blanc, Zanetti, Simeone, Keane, Beckham, Scholes, Giggs, and that’s just a few of them.

"It’s a joke, but no question at all, when I sit down and think about the best of them, Wayne is among them."
