Rooney Happy With Form

Rooney Happy With Form

United cruised to an impressive 3-0 victory on Tuesday night against FC Copenhagen. In the absence of Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, Wayne Rooney got the captain's armband and rose to the challenge magnificently. He gave in a fine performance, orchestrated the side with the excellent Paul Scholes. The 21-year old striker was the target of a lot of criticism in recent weeks but he seems to be back in form.

'We're really pleased, we got three goals and three points and it was an important win tonight,' Rooney told ITV1.

'We had a lot of chances but at the end of the day we're just happy to get three points.

'Obviously there were a few injuries and Giggsy was ill so just before we went out I got the armband. I was pleased with that but it wasn't the main issue of the night.

'My form is getting better, I was pleased with how I played against Wigan and again tonight. I think I'm more or less back to my best.'

Well, we never doubted him, did we?

They had gremlins so I believe. Must admit I missed it loads. Nothing to do but decorate. Sad
