Law hates comparisons but admits that there is a link between him and Unitedās current superstar.
āI like Rooney,ā Law told the Mirror. āHeās a bit of a grafter as well. Heāll get stuck in. Greaves was different. He was a poacher.
āWhen Greaves got in or near the box, you just thought āoh s***, no, not himā because invariably he would score.
āBut Greaves never got involved in the violence. Rooney and I share an attitude that if you want to be a goalscorer, you have got to get in there and mix it.
āDefenders donāt like people getting stuck in. If somebody kicks you, youāve got to kick them back. Because if you donāt, they will kick you again and again and again.
āBill Shankly instilled that in me when I played for him at Huddersfield. I got into trouble a lot with referees but if somebody kicked me I wasnāt going to let them get away with it.
āI was going to kick them back. They didnāt like it and when they didnāt like it, they didnāt kick you again so that was my protection really.ā
