Micah Richards has claimed Manchester City will be looking for revenge after Wayne Rooney’s brilliant overhead kick sealed a 2-1 win for United at Old Trafford this season, as the sides prepare to face each other at Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final.
“We’re looking to gain revenge for Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick,” said Richards. “It’s going to be a great game and we’ll all be looking forward to it.”
They also need revenge for the injury-time winner he scored against them last season to beat them in the League Cup semi-final. As well as the opening goal in 4-3 victory that season. And what about the winning goal he scored at Wastelands the season before? Or the first goal in our 3-1 win in the home game?
Let’s get it straight, Rooney has scored 6 goals in his 7 seasons at United against City.
