Rooney wins United Player of the Month for August

by Sam Peoples

After a barnstorming start to the season that has seen United get 3 wins from 3 wins and score 13 goals on the way, Wayne Rooney has been voted the Player of the Month with 41% of the vote, just pipping United new boy Ashley Young to the accolade after he received 38.5% of the vote. Rooney undoubtedly deserves the trophy after netting 5 goals in his first 3 Premier League games, including a stunning hat trick against Arsenal in the 8-2 mauling at Old Trafford last weekend. August has been an excellent month for United after picking up maximum points in the league as well as beating City in the Community Shield at the start of the month and we all hope that Rooney can continue his form into and through the international break as United look to continue their run of form in the hunt for title number 20.
