Wayne Rooney opened the scoring for Manchester United yesterday, before giving a dreadful passback to the goalkeeper which resulted in a Hull penalty. Rooney then went on to amend for his mistake by assisting a further two goals, which Dimitar Berbatov has revealed left the players claiming Rooney had assisted all of the goals yesterday.

“Wayne did fantastic for us – we were joking in the dressing room that he had three assists to his name!” said Berbatov. “He bounced back after their goal and made both the second and third ones which was great. If he can keep playing the way we know he can then I don’t think anyone can stop him. He’s still young and the future is ahead of him.”
