London, Nov. 21 : Star striker Wayne Rooney is again likely to be deployed in an unfamiliar central midfield role when Manchester United take on Benfica FC at Old Trafford tomorrow in search of Champions League glory.
The Star quoted the England star, as saying: "I love it. I don''t care where I play. I''m just happy to be on the pitch, I''ll play anywhere. Well, probably not right-back, no. But midfield is a role where you can get on the ball and influence the game a bit more."
Despite netting in both his last two Euro clashes, Rooney has not scored a Premier League goal for two months.
And his new midfield berth restricted him to a couple of long-range efforts in the 1-0 win at Swansea on Saturday.
But he shrugged off his top-flight goal drought, insisting: "The important thing is the team and that we work hard together, win together and lose together. I don''t care if I don''t score as long as we win."
Manchester United are still five points behind Manchester City in the title race. (ANI)
