Rooney calls for MLS change: U.S. players ‘taken advantage of’ with low salaries


The ex-Manchester United captain has given his thoughts as he exits the U.S. at the end of the season for Derby County in England’s second tier

Wayne Rooney has called for higher salaries and a European-style transfer market in Major League Soccer as he bids farewell to his time at D.C. United.

The former Manchester United and England captain played his last game for the U.S. club earlier in October as they were knocked out of the MLS Cup play-offs by Toronto FC.

The 34-year-old, who won all major domestic honours during his career in Premier League football, has signed a deal to become a player-coach with Derby County in the Championship from January onwards .
