Wayne Rooney Will Give Hundred Percent Anywhere - Darren Fletcher

Wayne Rooney Will Give Hundred Percent Anywhere - Darren Fletcher

Stoke City Midfielder Darren Fletcher has applauded Wayne Rooney's debut performance at Goodison Park and backs the player, will prove he is still top class.

Darren Fletcher played opposite his former teammate Wayne Rooney as he also made his Stoke City debut after moving in from West Bromwich this summer and his side succumbed to a one Nil loss to Everton courtesy of Wayne Rooney's debut goal.

"I thought it was a fantastic move for him,'' the ex-United midfielder said. "He's coming to a club he supports. Location-wise it's not a big move for his family. He's coming home, really.

"That will motivate him as well, not that he needs motivating, but if there was that little dip then this will motivate him because of how much the club means to him.

"If he went to another club, I'm sure he would give 100 percent because I know Wayne. But there is something extra special when you're at your boyhood team and you support the club.
"He will be delighted to be back here and scoring on his (Premier League) debut. He's a leader now, he will be setting an example to everyone.

"What a fantastic signing for Everton. It just seemed to fit didn't it? It was a match made in heaven for him at this stage of his career and with what he is trying to achieve as he is still a top-class player.

"It makes sense for everyone and you see that today. He could have gone to a league where he could have played in second gear but you can't do that in the Premier League.

"These Everton fans are very demanding so he has challenged himself which is fantastic, it's great. I hope he has a fantastic season -- and finishes below Stoke.''

Concerning Predictions of Struggles By Pundits this Season

"I think we will be all right,'' the 33-year-old said. "People can predict before the season but if they see this match, obviously we lost, I don't think we will struggle.

"It's interesting to see people writing us off. We can't do anything about it.''

Concerning The Loss Of Arnautovic

"Yeah and obviously we lost [Marko] Arnautovic, who was a good player. But there are a lot of good players in this squad.

"Our team will improve as well towards the end of the transfer window and we brought in some good players already.

"We feel fine, we are not paying too much attention [to critics]. We can't do much about that. Let people make their predictions -- the day somebody predicts the Premier League right I will shake their hand.

"Let's see at the end of the season.''
