Rooney up for fans award

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney’s recent fine form has earned him a nomination for the FTBPro PFA Fans Player of the Month award.

The Reds' no.10 started March with a strike away at West Brom before trebling his tally for the month at West Ham, where he notched a brace including that stunning long-range effort to leave the Hammers' keeper Adrian well and truly beaten.

Wayne's two goals at Upton Park moved the forward up to third place in the list of United's all-time top scorers with only Sir Bobby Charlton and Denis Law now standing in the way of Rooney's route to the top.

His game isn’t all about goals, though, and his all-round sweat-soaked displays have been just as likely to land him a place on the same shortlist as Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Eden Hazard, Seamus Coleman and Laurent Koscielny.

The FTBPro awards are designed to give supporters a say and are endorsed by the players and supported by the clubs. If your vote helps Wayne to win the prize, you could be in with a chance of winning two tickets to a Barclays Premier League match where you will meet and present the award to the striker before the game.

To register your vote for Rooney, please go to ftbpro.com/fanawards. Voting closes at midnight GMT on Friday 28 March.
