DC United's Steven Birnbaum on ExtraTime: "Guys want to play for Rooney"

He's Wayne Rooney's roommate, golf buddy and fellow veteran. So there's probably no better person than Steven Birnbaum to offer some in-depth perspective on Rooney's impact at D.C. United since arriving last summer.

Birnbaum shares some Rooney stories with ExtraTime driven by Continental, like the time that the Englishman approached Birnbaum about the D.C. captaincy. 

But one line perhaps best sums up what the Manchester United legend means to his new club: "The guys want to play for him."
