International star: Wayne Rooney's playing in the wrong position
Malta’s record goal-scorer said he would never drop into midfield like Rooney has done for England.
“He is a great centre-forward, now he is playing in the midfield,” said the former Coventry striker.
“He does play well there, but I believe his forte is up front because he smells the goal from everywhere.
“Maybe he plays there because he is now a veteran and there are young players coming in.
“He knows what they want and he is playing there to give them what he used to get.
“When he is playing in midfield, which is not his position, he doesn’t give what people are used to seeing.”
