'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rooney Knows His Priorities

Not winning the league for the third time in a row is something most clubs would be pretty happy with, for it implies they've won back-to-back titles. However, not landing the Premiership crown would indeed be a failure for Manchester United, as Wayne Rooney admitted.

'When you win the league, you know it will be even more disappointing the next season if you don`t win it again,' he said.

'You`ve already proved you`re good enough to do it, so you can`t see it as anything but a failure if you don't retain the trophy.

We're still in a VERY good position, if we've made it harder for ourselves.
