There's no doubt Wayne Rooney has a bit of get up and go about him. Whether you would put speed at the top of the his list of qualities is, however, debatable. No one would claim that Rooney is slow but the given wisdom seems to be that he is powerful as opposed to quick.
Obviously enough, power in athletes can more often than not translate to speed and when it comes to Rooney, that really is the case.

Three of Man United's top five speeds reached during last season came from Rooney. It's not surprising that he'd be up there with the likes of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, but for him to be so dominant in that regard is certainly interesting.
