POLL: Should Wayne Rooney be made Manchester United captain?

Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney has been tipped as a potential new captain for Manchester United.

Nemanja Vidic’s decision not to stay with Manchester United past the end of the season means David Moyes’ men are going to be searching for a new captain ahead of next season.

One of the obvious candidates for the job is striker Wayne Rooney, one of the more experienced and matured members of the first team.

Rooney has been tipped for a captaincy role at United before and it’s something United could also use to get the forward to sign a new deal, committing him to the club beyond 2015.

It’s a role Rooney could thrive on but the obvious counter argument is that it could affect his performances, with the extra responsibility of being Manchester United’s captain weighing down on him.

We’re going to let you decide whether giving Rooney the captain’s armband is a good idea. Take part and vote below.
