Wayne Rooney may be failing to fire in front of goal but at least he is having a positive impact on Memphis Depay's development at Manchester United.
Rooney stretched his goalless scoring streak to ten United matches on Saturday as Louis van Gaal's men drew 0-0 at home to Newcastle.
The United captain has not scored since April 4 although he was perhaps unlucky to have one chalked off for a very tight offside call against the Magpies on Saturday.
Yet despite his troubles in the box, Rooney is having a big influence in other areas - most notably in helping Depay find his feet at Old Trafford following his £25m move from PSV Eindhoven.
"Wayne Rooney helps me a lot," Depay said. "He has a lot of experience. He already knows everything about the football world so if I have any questions I can ask him."
