Wayne Rooney has struggled for goals and good performances over the past few weeks, with last night’s defeat against Cluj the latest example, but the manager reckons Rooney will play better on Sunday against Manchester City.
“Wayne has another 90 minutes under his belt and hopefully by Sunday he is in real top form,” said Ferguson. “He is approaching that now but Sunday will be a different kettle of fish altogether.”
Rooney tends to play well and score against City, so here’s hoping he plays out of his skin on Sunday. We’re going to need him to!
