Reds now top the standings, defending champions Manchester City by 25 points, before stopping the league due to the outbreak of the “Corona” virus.
Liverpool need only two more wins to secure their first league title in 30 years, with English football currently suspended until April 30.
Rooney, who has played for Liverpool Everton and Manchester United competitors, believes the Reds will win the league title this season.
However, 34-year-old Everton fans could not hide his desire to cancel the season without crowning any team.
“Liverpool will win the Premier League, now as you can imagine, I have Everton fans calling me saying … The season must be canceled,” Derby County player and coach wrote to the Sunday Times. ”
And then he continued, “Of course, as an Everton fan and someone who has played for Manchester United for 13 years, there is little in me that thinks it will be good.”
