Wayne Rooney has claimed that with experience he has learnt not to panic in matches, even if the scoreline isn’t going our way.
At the weekend against Norwich, United waited until injury time again before wrapping up the points, thanks to a Ryan Giggs goal.
“When I was a young lad and first at the club we might have been losing a game 1-0 or 2-1 and I’d have been saying ‘just put the ball in the box’ and panicking a bit about losing the game,” he told Inside United. “Now I’m older and more experienced you know to just keep playing your game because there’s always a chance you’ll get an opportunity to score. I think that comes from playing so many games and the experience you pick up along the way.”
