Rooney wins England Player of the Year

By BBC

Wayne Rooney has been named England Player of the Year for 2015, retaining the title he won in 2014.

The Manchester United forward earned 37 per cent of the votes cast by members of the England Supporters Club and has now won it four times.

Rooney, 30, overtook Sir Bobby Charlton to be England’s all-time top goalscorer during the year and was captain as England qualified for Euro 2016.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland was voted Under-21 Player of the Year.

The duo will be presented with their awards before the next England get-together in March.
