Jesse Lingard says he learned a lot from Wayne Rooney who returns to Old Trafford this weekend when Everton face Manchester United in the Premier League.

Rooney left United for Everton during the summer, after spending 13 trophy-laden years at Old Trafford.

And the 24-year-old Lingard says he has great respect for the Merseysider who is now back at the club where he first made his name in 2002.

"You learn every day from him. His experience in games, especially when you're young," said Lingard.

"If it's only 1-0 it's always hard to manage a game, and he knew what to do at times, especially towards the end of games.

"Of course it is hard to follow him, he's always going to be recognised as a legend at the club and he'll get a great reception when he comes back.

"Obviously he was there as a young boy and he thought it was the right decision at the time."

And while Rooney returned to his roots, Romelu Lukaku travelled in the opposite direction to take up the mantle as United's main striker.

Lingard said of the Belgian striker: "You've seen last year what he's capable of and what he did for Everton.

"He scored a lot of goals and now he's carrying that form on which is great for us.

Wayne Rooney convicted of drink driving .
Wayne Rooney has been given a two-year driving ban and has been told that he must do 100 hours of unpaid work after he pleaded guilty to drink driving. The Everton forward appeared before Stockport magistrates earlier today and pleased guilty to driving whilst under the influence of alcohol. When breathalysed, Rooney’s alcohol level was reportedly 104, almost three times higher than the legal limit of 35. When convicting the former England captain, Judge Temperley said to him: “I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you, this was a serious offence, you were driving a motor vehicle almost three times the legal limit, and you were carrying a female passenger which was an aggravating feature, and you put other road users at risk.” Rooney’s two-year driving ban could be reduced by 24 weeks if he undergoes a specialist driving course before February 2019.
