Rooney: Good, Ronaldo: The Best

Rooney: Good, Ronaldo: The Best

Sir Alex Ferguson is not worried by the lack of goals for Rooney and Ronaldo in the Champions League.

United have scored few goals in Europe in recent years, particularly in away games. Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo can be blamed for it, at least partially: the former have not scored in the competition since his debut against Fenerbahce while Ronaldo failed to find the net at all. Fergie is not worried by their problems in front of goal.

"I don`t know why the pair of them have not scored in the Champions League," Ferguson said. "We have not scored a lot of goals in Europe over the last two years at all, which is obviously a factor.

"Maybe it is just a case of them adapting to European football because they are both young players.

"But I don`t have an issue with either of them. Wayne`s contribution has been very good, while I believe Cristiano is the best player in the world just now."

That's all right, then.

Unfortunately, debut hat-tricks count for nothing in a quarter-final. A win maybe too much to ask, given our dismal away record in the Champions League but a score draw would be great.
