Slaven Bilic👔 called Wayne Rooney⭐ the best English player he has ever seen and hoped he wouldn't be fit enough to play West Ham🔨 in the FA Cup🏆 quarter-finals on Wednesday. "I’m a massive Rooney fan since he stepped on to the pitch in an Everton shirt.I can’t talk about Jimmy Greaves or Bobby Charlton or Bobby Moore, but in my era Rooney is the best English player. I would rather he didn’t play tomorrow night. 70 per cent, 100 per cent fit, I would rather he watched the game", said Bilic. Rooney, who had been sidelined for a few weeks, made an appearance for the under-21 side on Monday as part of his rehabilitation😃. Bilic felt that the Hammers are "slight favourites" against United♦, as they are playing at Upton Park.
