Default 'Ronney better than me' - Van Basten

Source : News of the world, Sunday 13/02/05
Hate to disagree with the great man but Rooney will never be as good as Van Basten. For me he was the best striker of all time and ,although rooney is a fantastic player granted, he will never be greater than Van Basten.

He must be on some potent Dutch stuff... Ahm, kidding of course

He might be better than van Basten was at 18, I can't judge cos when van Basten was 18 I wasn't even born.

It's not really a Milan-related issue, however, + therefore should have been posted under.... Football.

One day he might be better then Marco but I don't think that the two can be compared at this stage of Rooney's career,he hasn't won anything while Marco won trophies with the Dutch national team as well as Milan,Rooney has a long way to go to even be considered for this comparison

Don't sure about it, Rooney has done well in Euro 2004 but in Premier League he didn't played that well.. Maybe at the age of 18, Rooney is better than Van Basten but in the future, who knows?

Obviously right! And also there is a tendency for players like Van Basten to wanna seem modest. They say like, um:" That kid is better than me (I wasn't that good)". Hard to belive someone will ever be as good as Van Basten. Im mean, DAMN, you seen him too. What more can you say about him? He was from a different planet!

Is it true? It sounds like a joke to me. How can Ronney be better than him
Ronney is not constant enough. He played well for the Euro 2004 but he isn't that well in EPL now.
