Manchester United name their fastest player of the season

Fola Akintomide

United’s quickest player was revealed as Wayne Rooney after GPS tracking devices measured their speeds during last season’s Premier League campaign.

Rooney posted three of the top five highest speeds last season, including 35 kilometres per hour during the win over Aston Villa in April, while his England team-mate Ashley Young joined Luke Shaw and Phil Jones in the top five.

The data, collated by analysts at Tracab, was recorded using six cameras within the stadium which boast unique software and visual recognition to capture the information.

James Wilson and Chris Smalling recorded the fastest times in individual matches but it was the United skipper who can now lay claim to being the quickest player at Old Trafford.
