Manchester United striker admits next season will be intense

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney believes Chelsea will be the biggest threat next seasonManchester United striker Wayne Rooney has admitted that next season could be even more intense than last and the England international also believes that Chelsea will be United’s biggest threat for the Premier League title.

Chelsea came back in the latter stages of the 2010/2011 Premiership although a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford put an end to their hopes, ultimately leading to the sacking of their manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Rooney however also believes that there will be at least five teams fighting for the title next season.

“Chelsea will be our main rivals for the league next season, they are so strong and powerful and ended the season so well. Chelsea, Manchester City, Spurs, Liverpool and Arsenal will all be fighting for top four.”

Rooney added.

“It makes it even more intense. It wouldn’t surprise you if any of those teams finished in the top two. The teams in the lower half have improved. Going away from home was so difficult this season.”
