Premier League Labelled their squad the best in the world
Wayne Rooney has claimed that, should Pep Guardiola had coached England during their golden generation, the Three Lions would have lifted many trophies.
The Englishman indicated that the group of players in the squad one decade ago was the finest in the world at the time.
“You look at our team ten years ago and arguably we had the best group of players in world football,” he said in his personal podcast.
“Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, [Steven] Gerrard, [Paul] Scholes, [Frank] Lampard, [David] Beckham, myself, Michael Owen – our team then.
“If we had a Guardiola with that group of players, we’d have won everything, no doubt about it.”
Rooney participated in six final stages of major tournaments, where England never managed to go through the quarter-finals.
