Focus on... Wootton

MUTV's regular feature puts United's younger players under the spotlight...

First team played for?
Wallasey Wanderers. They were just my local team and only 10 minutes from my house.

Signed for United...
I was 15 and just about to turn 16.

First player you idolised...
Rio Ferdinand. Always - not just at United. Just growing up as a kid, I loved the way he played.

What are your strengths?
Probably reading the game. I'm quite composed, have a decent range of passing plus heading and tackling. Scoring every now and again! (Laughs).

Biggest achievement...
Probably making my debut in Gary Neville's Testimonial. Also coming on against Barcelona in that game in Sweden in the summer.

What is your career highlight so far?
Maybe scoring on my debut for Tranmere. They are my local team and are only five minutes from my house so, to make my professional debut for that club, and to score the equaliser late on was pretty special at the time.
